“In times like these it is good to remember that there have always been times like these.” Paul Harvey
No matter what these times may be in our lives, this is a great quote to remember, especially as leaders.
Over the past 50 years of life we have all seen several changes within the church. Some of these changes have been good and some destructive.
There were “times like these” on several occasions. At the time we may have wondered if this was the only time something like this has happened. Have others faced the same challenges and struggled with the same feelings?
Solomon reminds us there is nothing new under the sun. Paul Harvey expresses it another way, but the thought is the same.
Leaders will always face challenges when leading others. It may be a different generation, culture, gender, age, or time of day, but the outcome is the same. There will always been times like these.
Let us remember to seek God’s counsel and listen to His word. Here is the only place we will find the true answers to solve the problems we face.
