Being a leader doesn’t mean we can bulldoze others’ opinions to follow our agenda. Being a leader means seeing the potential in others and help them to develop their potential while setting an example how we live our lives.
Maya Angelou’s books and quotes have been an inspiration to me. When I first look at this quote, I was deeply moved.
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better”
Life is a series of learning. We make decisions basing on what we feel is the best option at that time. In hindsight, we may regret certain decisions but that was what we think was the best thing to do at that moment.
It is comforting to know that when we know better, we can learn from our mistakes and make better decisions in the future.
God is with us through challenges in life
In life, there are challenges and tasks that terrify us but God is with us (Deuteronomy 31:8). He promises to never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He provides all that we need (Matthew 6:31-32).
Praise be to God!
‘Vision’ is to see in our mind God’s plan and purpose for our lives, both now and the future, partial and whole, and take action to do what God is calling us to do.
Where there is no vision, the people perish. Joy, blessedness and success come when we have a vision from God and act on it.
From August onwards, the church will start to plan for Christmas 2023 and for the programmes for next year. We need to seek God’s heart for the church and for the community and catch His vision so that the activities of the church bring glory to Him.
As an individual, what is the vision God has placed within you? Quietly listening, praying and waiting for Him and He will show you.
August is here!
