Someone has said, ”I do not know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
No one wants to experience failure, and many do not lead because they are afraid to fail. If everyone had this attitude, where would we be spiritually? If no one had the courage to lead, even when difficult, what would happen to the church? We know it is impossible to please everyone. Therefore…
Lead with the Bible as the basis for all decisions.
Make decisions with confidence.
Communicate decisions clearly.
Express reasons why the decisions are made.
Understand not everyone will like or agree with all decisions and it’s okay.
