Under-Delegation vs. Over-Delegation

Delegation is also the number one development tool you possess as a leader. No amount of education (important), training (also important) or feedback (very important) can substitute for direct responsibility. Emerging leaders need to learn under the yoke of responsibility. Look back at your own growth as a leader to see the truth of this. But there is a danger in both under-delegating and over-delegating.

Mentoring for Kingdom Potential

Like towering trees in a dense forest, leaders in Jesus’ time were egocentric, oppressive, and in charge. They shut out much needed light for emerging leaders. Perhaps this is why Jesus never described His disciples as leaders. He didn’t want future leaders of His church to absorb those leadership values. The church’s healthy beginning was linked to Jesus’ sacrificial resolve to lead by focusing on His followers’ highest potential. Rick uses examples from the beginning of his ministry as a pastor to illustrate how experienced Christians can have a tremendous impact on younger, less mature Christians through mentoring.

Everybody Has a Weakness

A rope bridge is probably one of the most precarious tools to use while crossing a gorge or river because you trust your life to the rope’s strength. Solomon compared humans to a single-strand rope. Weakness is a human characteristic, and the Bible tells us that alone, one is weak, and two walking together are not easily overcome, but a three-stranded cord is hard to break (Ecc. 4:12). Dionna points out there are some weaknesses that God allows in order to help us become stronger in Him.
