STRENGTH vs. weakness: Weak leaders don’t last long. A leader with a “weak-link” will bite the dust sooner than later. Think of a leader like you would a bicycle chain. Unless it is serviced regularly, and this would include “self-improvement” issues…then “it will break!”
Strong Leaders, generally… last longer (as they should). Corporate America typically replace their CEO’s every 6 years. They don’t do it because the leader is “too strong.” Rather….because they’re “too weak.”
1st Cor. 1:27 – “God hath chosen the weak things of this world to confound the things that are mighty.” Psalms 84:5 – “Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee.”
That said… most Leaders are no different than TV stars who have held the “high-ratings” for numerous seasons…i.e. Jerry Seinfeld. They want to go out on top before their popularity starts to wane, or diminish. Too many Leaders miss-gauge where the top is… and end up being dumped… same theory in the “sports arena.”
There are some…in Corporate America who prefer to leave God at the front door of the office, instead hanging up a sign… “You’re… Fired.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
