A Kingdom Leader always invites the analysis and input of other leaders into their daily activity. They recognize that their own personality, strengths and weaknesses can slant their understanding. It can blind them to the selection of priorities and the necessity of collecting quality leaders around you.
Who has questioned your workload and schedule? Do you seek wisdom from others to help establish priorities amid non-stop activities? Are your strengths maximized by the activities that consume you? Are you selecting quality leaders with character that you can pass responsibilities too?
Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, observed activities for a day in Exodus chapter eighteen. He could clearly see what Moses was missing. He could also see that Moses had put himself in a no win situation.
Exodus 18:18 (ESV)
18 You and the people with you will certainly wear yourselves out, for the thing is too heavy for you. cYou are not able to do it alone.
Seek and invite mentors into your life. They will have eyes, minds and experience that can make you more effective in your leadership. God has placed those mentors around you to help.
