Great Divide…

The Great Divide spans a distance between two objects physically, figuratively, and spiritually.

Abraham spoke of a great gulf between the rich man and Lazarus, so no one could cross over from one side to the other.

A number of areas arise to explain how a great divide is developed regarding spiritual leadership.

1) Pride: When people perceive a leader as prideful, their leadership is no longer effective.

2) Selfishness: A spirit of self-centeredness prevents a leader from seeing the possibilities in others and hinders growth.

3) Prejudice: To prejudge someone or a situation without proper information leaves a leader without good judgment.

The Great Divide can be an insurmountable barrier and destructive to our leadership. We must guard our words and actions to prevent it.
