Still Going

Permanent.

I’m thankful to live in a place with four season! Watching the cycle of life so clearly is a good reminder. In my garden the tomatoes are almost done. My zucchini finished, days ago. Its time to put in some winter greens.

Leadership too has its cycles.

When I listen to leaders at a transition point I hear their yearning for a legacy. Leave a legacy. This can be problematic. The prophet Isaiah was confronted with legacies that were not all that great. In fact he lamented the destruction of his nation. So God brings their attention to what is truly permanent.

Isaiah 40:6-8
6A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
7The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

When the music fades… the word of our God will stand forever.
Christian leadership points to the lasting word of God and creates environments where disciples can build their lives on God’s Word.
