Not trying to date myself, but I remember listening to music on LP’s and 45’s. The interesting part of 45’s involved an A and B side. The hit song was usually recorded on the A side and a filler song was on the B, of lesser quality.
I have seen this in several venues. Preachers who speak twice on Sunday tend to give the A lesson Sunday morning (largest crowd). Sadly, the Sunday night crowd often gets the B lesson.
It is true in sports. Generally, when the playoffs roll around many athletes tend to bring the A game. However, during practice or regular season games the B effort is produced (a lesson for another time).
How about our families? Do we give everyone our A side and when we get home give our families what is leftover (the B side)?
You should already know where I am going. When it comes to leading, are we producing an A effort or do we give the leftovers, a B effort?
It’s the difference in producing a hit or just a filler. The choice is ours.
