As our children were growing up, at the usual age, they began to ask, why?
I want you to brush your teeth. Why? It’s time for you to go to bed. Why? You need a good night’s sleep. Why? You have school tomorrow and you need to be alert. Why? Finally, in frustration, I would exclaim, because I said so!
Yet, this simple, one word question, is powerful in considering the decisions we make as spiritual leaders.
Why? Give it some thought.
