As a leader in my 20s, I remember having a lot of passion in whatever project or endeavor I set my mind to. Passion can be contagious and I think seeing a mentor leading with passion rubbed off on an eager young adult like me. In fact, people were able to overlook some of my inadequacies as a leader because of my authentic passion in my work and for helping people.
I discovered something while at a men’s retreat. The greatest impact you can make in the lives of people is to lead small. We often think bigger is better but when it comes to growing in our faith and building authentic relationships, smaller wins out.
When you look at the life of Jesus, He had a group of 12 disciples and in his inner circle were just three people. Who in your group is God calling you to apprentice and mentor in this season? Let’s focus on a few this year and really invest and pour into their lives so that they can eventually pass that on to others. So, remember to lead small.
