Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions, not words, that matter.” Nicholas Sparks

As powerful as our words can be, Sparks’ analysis of our actions being the heart of the matter is true.

Words are twisted and construed as meaning something different than were originally intended. They are taken out of context and used against us. The same was true of Jesus, as the religious leaders did everything in their power to trap Him in His words.

Even though they never did, the greatest conflict they struggled with was determining what to do with the fact His actions were amazing, miraculous. Peter reminds us that Jesus went about doing good (Acts 10).

What a lesson for leaders to learn today. The battle of wit with our words can never be won as long as our actions fail to align.

Say what we will, the end of the matter rests upon what leaders do or fail to do that leaves a lasting impression in the minds of followers.
