One of my goals this year is to create a movement. I heard this principle on a web cast.
To create a movement the leader must be passionate. I’m not looking to Donald Trump but to the eternal principles demonstrated by Jesus’ calling of His disciples:
He gave them a clear mission:
I will make you fishers of men.
He promise to empower them.
He demonstrated mastery in their profession.
He gained their respect and admiration. He spoke their language.
He did something out of the ordinary to capture their attention and devotion. He met their needs and was compassionate.
He exceeded their expectations.
He made them feel successful. He replaced hopelessness with hope.
He made them feel good about themselves. He had an answer for the hardships they faced.
These unlearned men in Matthew 5:1-11 changed the world and the direction of civilization. What impact they have made.
