Great leadership knows how to address matters of greater importance.
Jesus was masterful at directing one’s focus toward the spiritual. One example involved the disciples’ concern over the destruction of the temple, the sign of His coming, and the end of the age.
Jesus addressed their concerns, but He then took them further into events surrounding judgment.
He wanted them to know something greater than the destruction of the temple was coming, and the reason for teaching this truth was to encourage preparation for that day.
Our leadership is the same. It’s about preparing others for that day.
