Perhaps you have seen the commercial. Life throws you a problem, a challenge too great to handle. No problem, just push the “easy” button.
While an easy button might help in the purchase of office supplies, life and leadership do not work this way.
It is interesting how the challenges in life and leadership tend to occur when the path is operating the smoothest.
Perhaps we were just beginning to see the proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel.”
Maybe success was in reach after months or years of intensive planning and work.
Believe it or not, there are times when one challenge begins and another sits down next to it, possibly three or four all at once.
We are all aware of needing an easy button. We want a chance at a fresh start.
The challenge before leaders is recognizing when difficulties arise and knowing how to lead.
No one is exempt. Spiritual leaders face the task of helping those who face these struggles, face them with confidence and assurance. We need hope. Christ is the only possibility. He did not promise an easy button in life, but an opportunity of a fresh start. Let us lead others to Him.
