Anytime I have opportunity to write about my grandchildren, I love doing so. I have learned a great deal from them and I know over time they will continue to teach me.
Recently, my granddaughter, who is 3 years old, wanted to play a little game of hide and seek.
There is a bit of a twist with the way she likes to play. She tells me where she is going to be hiding and then wants me to come find her. Hmmm. Of course, she expects the same in return.
I love the way she counts to 4 or 5 and then says, “Ready, I come.”
Considering the fun we had playing this game, I thought about leadership. Are we playing a game of hide and seek when it comes to leading others?
If so, do we inform others of where we are going and where we can be found, or do we leave them wondering, or perhaps better said, wandering?
Playing games can be fun, but let us be clear in the direction we are leading so others can easily seek and find. Sounds Biblical to me!
