A quick glance at various weather channels indicates a contrast in weather across the country. From East to West and North to South we see snow, sunshine, and hurricane-like rain. These changes cause us to frequently check the forecast for the location where we live.
The meteorologist may not always get the forecast right, but as technology improves so does the accuracy of the weather.
The same should be true of leadership. Wonderful tools are available at our fingertips to improve our ability to lead. However, there are several questions we need to consider regarding our approach to leading with these possibilities.
Are we using these tools to help us improve our leadership?
How are we using these tools to benefit the lives of those who follow?
Do we make excuses for why we are not using these tools, or work to learn how to use them?
One day we will be held accountable for the avenues, opportunities, and tools God has entrusted to our spiritual leadership.
We must not believe we can excuse ourselves by saying we did not want to learn how to use it.
