An effort to please everyone is doomed to fail. Marco Rubio said, “We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.”
Sadly, the adage about the “squeaky wheel” is true. Those who complain the most and loudest tend to get action.
The church needs leaders who… 1) examine scripture to ensure decisions are biblical, 2) do not follow the flow of modern popularity, 3) never rush a decision, but do not hesitate between two opinions either, 4) make the decision, 5) remember, not every decision will please everyone.
The responsibility of decisive leadership is crucial to the future.
