Negativity is a powerful influence. Whether age, circumstances of life, challenges within the church, or any number of areas, we can easily become cynical.
We cannot and must not allow daily external situations to influence our efforts in making change.
We not only have a reason to live, but a reason to have joy in this life, as we anticipate the coming of an eternal one.
Our efforts as leaders must be to make a positive change. The external circumstances will always exist and challenge the core of leadership. However, we must arise above it and lead to make a positive change, one that begins with us.
