A leader's role includes managing the performance of others, whether at home or in organizational settings. We are responsible to help others understand what they need to do and to coach them in performing well. We all long to do well, to contribute, and to know how they can improve. On the basis of this universal longing, we can look for God-given opportunities to encourage others. What are you doing to help others find significance, develop needed skills, and achieve satisfying results?
After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.”—Mark 9:28-29
Prayer: Jesus, open our eyes to the developmental needs of those for whom we are responsible. Show us how to meet them at their point of need so they can develop the skills they need to live, work, and lead well. For Your glory and their good, and in Your name we pray, amen.
