Hybels introduces this next session (a bit of a paraphrase, because I was trying to finish up that last post at the same time):
“We often get the impression that if we get better as leaders, everything we lead will just always keep going up and to the right. But what if that’s not always true? What if God calls some people to lead in really hard realms where there may be little signs of visible success in this world.”
“We are going to talk about how addicted some of us may be to the narcotic of growth. Many of us are ready to step into leadership opportunities that promise success and perhaps an easier road, and some of us may like being leaders because we get to lead stuff like that. And I think it’s possible that we can get hooked on the narcotic of growth. So we are going to look at 3 leaders who have led through tough callings.”
Wes Stafford of Compassion International is up now.
