LEADING OR PLAYING?

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Luke 7:31-32

They are like children who sit in the market place and call to one another…
Luke 7:32 (NASB)
 
The leadership of a child is characterized by having fun and celebrating.
You must study leadership, understand leadership, and practise appropriate principles of leadership otherwise you may lead people with the mind of a child. A child loves to play, play, play! If you do not develop leadership skills you will be like a child who is only concerned about celebrations, entertainment, anniversaries and parties instead of the serious business of leading.
The leadership of a child is dominated by a lack of understanding of the financial costs and implication of things. You must understand leadership because in the absence of good leadership abilities you have people who are called leaders but who waste their resources on ceremonies, anniversaries and clothing rather than on permanent things.
Children talk about things they cannot and will not do. Children declare that they will become singers, astronauts and doctors but they do not become any of these things. A person with the leadership mind of a child loves to attend numerous meaningless conferences, make statements and declare lofty goals but he implements none of these things.
