A Leadership Lesson From Abraham: God’s Way or My Way?

The below is Lesson 9 from our Leadership Lessons series.

LESSON NINE: God’s way is always better than my way.
KEY QUESTION: How can we discern between God’s way and our way?

As a follower of Jesus (this is a leadership conversation for sure!), there’s no argument about whose way is the best way.

God’s way is always the best way. Always.

As a leader (or human), the problem we have is trying to discern God’s way from our way.

This is a “God’s will” discernment conversation.

Think about the decisions you’ve made in the past. There were times your way and God’s way aligned. There were also times you knew unequivocally that your way wasn’t God’s way. You did it anyway, but you knew. Then there were times you believed your way aligned to God’s way, only to find out you were mistaken. Of course, there have also been times when you felt your way aligned to God’s way, but others disagreed.

So how do you know? How can we know when we are heading in God’s direction versus choosing our path?

In this NEW POST, we’ll consider the call of Abraham. His first interaction with God gives us a massive clue for our life, too.
