Anyone with children knows the question, “Are we there yet?” The idea of traveling for hundreds of miles and hearing the question one more time can be frustrating.
However, when we consider the basis for the question it might change the perspective we have toward spiritual leadership.
The idea screams of anticipation. The excitement of reaching the destination coupled with the struggles of waiting through the journey.
Spiritual leaders, above all, should know the excitement of reaching the destination. The journey will be filled with struggles, but also rewards.
What is it in our life that we anticipate? What is it we are so excited about we cannot help but ask “are we there yet?”
The thrill of spiritual leadership is found in knowing the destination that awaits us.
In addition, there is the joy of leading others who share the journey.
Can we see it? Is there excitement? Are we there yet?
