What will you point, click, and scatter?
By Tami Heim
There’s a design feature in the masterpiece of creation that gives a planted seed the possibility to grow strong and bear fruit. In the same way the words you post in your network conversations are digital seeds. You point, click, and scatter them daily on a cyber mission field. Each one of them has the potential to travel a trillion megabytes, land somewhere unexpected, take root, grow strong, and bear fruit.
Jesus knew how to live and lead sticky. He influenced the thinking, the behavior, and the development of others. There wasn’t a town or a city He entered where hearts and minds did not respond. When He engaged the people in conversation, they listened. When He spoke the language of eternity and performed miracles, lives changed. His ideas and His love stuck.
Jesus’ life matched His message. There weren’t grey areas around His integrity or identity. The challenge for us today is to effectively engage a needful planet and lead the conversation like Jesus. Leadership books repeat the characteristics: leaders go against the grain, take personal risks to achieve a greater goal, and create culture. They’re mission-centric. They speak of vision, possibility, and teamwork. Great leaders are exceptional communicators and standout influencers. Great leaders get personal.
