There are so many things that you can do to grow as a leader. To grow in your faith. Most of them are good. But what are the things that will have the most impact? A real, lasting impact?
I was reminded of an answer to that question this week as 62 leaders committed 60 minutes to sit in a circle. Well, actually they were sitting in a rectangle around large conference room tables. 62 men and women, in five different marketplace groups, from companies across northwest Arkansas invested 60 minutes to begin a journey. For 13 weeks, they will learn biblical leadership lessons from one of the great leaders of the Bible…Nehemiah!
I received an email from one of our WorkMatters Group leaders that met at 6:00a.m. yesterday! The anticipation these women expressed was powerful.
How encouraging to see all ten chairs around the table in the Harvest board room filled with women yearning to:
- plug into a Bible study for the first time since college
- meet other women in business
- learn practical ways to have my faith be part of my life at work and not be separated from the rest of my activities
- put God first even though I’m not a morning person and it won’t be easy as a single mom
Have you considered sitting in a circle with a small group of leaders that can create a lasting impact in your life and you in theirs?
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1Thessalonians 5:11
