Leadership Lessons: Big Idea: Only in the darkness can you see the stars. —Martin Luther King Jr.
No one wants to go through difficult times. This is true of leaders of business, family, or personal. It can reduce your scope so you can manage the difficulty. MLK had a good take on the difficult times. It is then that you can see the stars – the bright spots – the glimmer of hope that is so necessary to keep hope alive. As a leader, one of our roles is to keep hope alive for those around us. How do we do that when so much can be at stake for those in our purview, like the marketplace, family, neighborhood, or church? One of the ways is to keep our eyes up, for that is where the stars are – that glimmer of hope that we need. Psalm 121:1 tells us to lift our eyes to the hills, for our help comes from the Lord who made them.
Today – Are you in a dark place in your life, the life of your business, your family, or friends? How do you handle what you cannot see? Often we cannot see that outcome or even the next few steps. As a leader, reach out to a friend, go to the Bible, or a Christian leader who can encourage you and advise you of the next step in your life. Bless you, as you bless others. It is in these times of darkness that we can make an impact.
