“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
The key to this leadership thought is the word committed.
I will never forget the first time I heard a university football coach talk about three questions he asked each of the incoming football players.
Can I trust you?
Are you committed?
Do you care?
At the heart of these questions is the thought of commitment. I am convinced that when you take people who can be trusted, who are committed to the cause, and they care, they will change the world.
As Margaret Mead states, “It is the only thing that ever has.”
When we look at the early church, led by apostles who demonstrated the affirmative to all three questions, we find Christians who were willing to give their lives freely for Jesus.
Our leadership for Christ should demonstrate the same if we ever hope to change the world.
