"The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established." Proverbs 16:1-3.
|Leadership Promises - Are You a Navigator.|
Effective leaders practice the Law of Navigation, which says that anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course. The verses in Proverbs 16 remind leaders to:
- Check the source of their wisdom.
- Check their motives.
- Check the outcome they are pursuing.
- Process - God's plan usually unfolds over time. What is He revealing progressively?
- Purpose - God wants to accomplish His purposes. Why were you created?
- Potential - God will use your gifts and passion. Does this goal fit who you are?
- Prioritize - God will ask you to adjust your time and energy. What steps must you take?
- Proceed - God will eventually require you to act. When should you start?
