“Some people come into your life as blessings, others come into your life as lessons.” Mother Teresa
This post is not to condone or support any one person or thing, but the thought expressed here is true. This thought is also expressed in a number of ways, one of which goes something like this: “Everyone brings happiness, some when they come and some when they leave. Therefore, live your life in such a way that people are happy to see you come.”
How is our leadership characterized? Are we a blessing or a lesson?
The answer may be a matter of perspective, but the question is relevant. As we influence those we meet, and those who watch from a distance, we should consider how our words and actions make a difference.
Our words should always be with grace, seasoned as with salt, so that we know how to respond to every person (Col. 4:6).
We need to provide an example in life of such a nature that others glorify God when they see it (Mt. 5:16).
Following this advice will make us a blessing and a lesson.
