Wisdom and courage warrant discussion on many levels and have for a long time. These two qualities or attributes are critical to the development of leaders.
Mark Amend says, “Wisdom is learning to let go when you want to hang on. Courage is learning to hang on when you want to let go.”
Learning to let go even when our emotions are telling us something contrary and learning to hang on when the appearance of letting go makes sense are foundational components to demonstrating wisdom and courage.
Spiritual leaders today need to learn the potent combination of both.
