Expansion is the action of becoming larger or more extensive. We talk about expanding a program of work, a building project, and even investments.
What about the expansion of our leadership?
We can easily fall into the “comfort zone.” We enjoy the status quo and before long nothing happens. Our leadership needs to be expanded. How?
Read material dealing with the growth of our leadership skills.
Spend time with successful leaders.
Ask God to open doors and grant us wisdom.
If we will get out of the rut and ask for a little help, our leadership will expand to greater levels.
On the heels of yesterday’s post, it seemed fitting to consider the need for exploring the idea of expansion in our leadership.
Expansion is the action of becoming larger or more extensive. Unless we are able to think bigger, plan larger, trust more, and implement the options to achieve expansion, we will not grow beyond the shadow of our own leadership.
The challenge for leaders today is to eliminate the “status quo” and move forward to greater heights.
We should not be surprised that God commands us to do so (2 Pe. 3:18). If that was not enough, He also expects us to grow (He. 5:12-14). In the final analysis, God designed the church so that it would grow (Ep. 4:11-12).
Expansion, whether we like it or not, is a part of God’s plan and we are privileged to participate in that plan if we are but willing to do so.
Let us set our eyes on a greater horizon, a more global mindset, and implement plans to expand the borders of the Lord’s kingdom.
