Leadership Word Of The Week…Narrative

A narrative is basically described as telling a story. However, the idea behind this week’s word runs much deeper. An account of connected events is also referred to as a narrative.

However, for our purposes today, we need to consider a narrative in the following light: a representation of a particular situation or process in such a way as to reflect or conform to an overarching set of aims or values.

The power of this definition reflects a connection to our leadership within the sphere of God’s overarching aims and values for His leaders.

Our narrative is written within the greater narrative of God’s will, His design and purpose for our lives.

Leading within this narrative moves us to consider how we can help others by leading them to see their part within this narrative.

When we connect the events together and see the providential working of God moving throughout the activities of our life, we understand more fully the need to look for ways to plug in and allow God to work through us for the greater purpose of His narrative.
