Grape-Tasters and Giant-Chasers
This past week, I spent some time with a group of change-makers talking about transformational leadership. I was challenged and inspired by the topic, but even more so by the energy imparted by being with people who are walking out the high calling on their lives.
As a result, I’ve been considering the leaders who’ve had a big influence on my life. The list starts with Caleb and Joshua whose fame was established as they considered the land of Canaan, a land of promise. (This story is found in the Book of Numbers, Chapters 13 and 14)
As you may remember, they were the only two out of a team of twelve who saw opportunity where others only saw danger. They saw possibilities while others whined about obstacles. They had vision, faith and hope, where others had negativity, pessimism and doubt.
So which team are you on? You choose.
Are you going with the grape-tasters and giant-chasers or are you going to play it safe and stay where you are? It may not be great but at least you’re dealing with known threats instead of risk.
As for me, I’m on the move – pressing forward. There’s promise of amazing reward, but the journey is not going to be over easy ground.
Are you coming?
Watch this 3 minute video clip as you consider the choice.
