My greatest leadership deficiency has been taunting me lately. Most of the time its relatively quiet; only an occasional uproar. But recently it’s been loud and obnoxious. It’s reminding me where I’m weak and how much I need its influence. And what makes it worse is I see evidence in my leadership that it’s right. My greatest leadership deficiency can potentially have a crippling effect on the mission God has called me to.
Are you aware of your greatest leadership deficiency? Stupid question. All of us are. It tries to beat us up and discourage us all the time saying, “Without me you’ll surely fail,” “Without me you can’t have leadership credibility” or “Without me you can’t do it.”
But here’s the thing that my biggest leadership deficiency fails to recognize. God wired me with my strengths as well as my deficiencies. And each time it screams out, “You need me,” what I hear is, “I need my team.”
What has your greatest leadership deficiency been telling you lately? See what Paul has to say in I Corinthians 12:12-26. and it may help quieten that voice.
