Anyone with children has heard the question and probably several times. The idea of traveling hundreds of miles and hearing the question one more time can be frustrating.
However, when we consider the basis for the question it might change the perspective we have toward spiritual leadership.
The question screams of anticipation. The excitement of reaching the destination brings anticipation. We know there are struggles to face through the journey. We also know there are rewards. We cannot wait to get there. Are we there yet?
Spiritual leaders, above all, should know the excitement of reaching the destination. The journey will be filled with struggles, as well as, rewards.
What are we anticipating in life? What are we so excited about we cannot help but think “are we there yet?”
The thrill of spiritual leadership is found in knowing the incredible destination awaiting us.
In addition, there is the joy of leading others who share the journey.
Can we see it? Are we excited? How great is our anticipation? Are we there yet?
