The eye is an amazing part of the human body, but there is not enough space to cover its complex intricacies.
However, as we age, our arm does not often extend quite far enough to read the print on a page.
Two conditions normally occur: 1) nearsightedness – the ability to see things up close, but not far away, or 2) farsightedness – the ability to see things far away, but not up close.
Spiritually, leaders must avoid both conditions. Leaders need the ability to see needs that exist up close (present), and they must see what will happen far away (future).
Seeing both near and far makes it possible to address current needs and plan for the future.
