Each day we are given an opportunity to live on the stage of life. Others are witnessing every move and every word. Images are being imbedded in their minds of what they see, just like a photograph.
As they recall the days gone by, they remember these images and the impact left by them.
We do the same with those we meet every day.
David Nicholls framed it like this: “I want to live life in such a way that if a photograph were taken at random, it would be a cool photograph.”
We have no way of knowing the specific intent behind this thought, but the implication can be powerful to the way others see our leadership.
The question we need to ask ourselves is what would the photograph others take of us look like?
Like most good photographs, there are times the perfect shot can only be taken in a moment of time. We may only have a moment for others to take that perfect picture that changes their lives forever.
Christians leaders must always let their light shine in such a way others can see their good works and glorify God.
