Remember when Jesus pointed out how the Pharisees and Sadducees were able to state the obvious regarding the signs of the weather, yet were blind to the signs from heaven?
Well, our leadership needs to be about both. We need an eye for the obvious, one in tune with the environment and present circumstances all around us.
However, we also need a vision for the future. We need to see where we are going and what it will take to get there.
No creative and crafty approach will produce the kind of spiritual leaders God needs today. We need leaders who know the way and can point people to it!
