Great movements occur when a leader gets discontent enough to make others uncomfortable.
We’ve seen them throughout history….
Joan of Arc – George Washington – Abraham Lincoln – Mahatma Gandhi –
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Mother Teresa – Winston Churchill
We’ve also seen them in our communities… church planters, community leaders, founders of non-profit organizations, moms who fight for health, education and safety.
Great leaders are comfortable making others uncomfortable for a vision of a greater good. They understand that keeping others happy perpetuates the status quo. And they’re willing to risk being liked for being extraordinary.
- Where are you settling for status quo?
- What movement has God inspired you to lead?
