All leaders will face problems. How we deal with problems makes the difference.
I commonly hear people speak of moving from one fire (problem) to another. When one fire is out, they are racing to the next.
What will help with these problems before they become emergencies?
Address problems when they arise. Problems do not resolve themselves.
Rely on wise counsel. Solomon teaches the value of wise counsel.
Learn to delegate. Get others involved in problem resolution.
Our task as spiritual leaders is to provide a solution from God’s word. Here, and only here, can real solutions be found.
