CREATED FOR RELATIONSHIP


CREATED FOR RELATIONSHIP

“Do you remember what God said about Adam before the creation of Eve? “It is not good for the man to be alone.” (Genesis 2:18) God’s first comment on the state of human beings was that Adam needed a helper.

But modern men have changed that. We say it is better that we should be alone; not unmarried, but alone as far as relationships are concerned. So we are flying in the face of God’s Word when we insist on our independence to the detriment of those around us. God said aloneness is not good.

Not only this, but Philippians 2:4 says, “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Not only do you need good relationships for yourself, you need to provide them for others.

Failing to build a strong relationship with your wife because you don’t think you need one yourself is to deprive her of her need. The same thing goes for your children.

When we do this as husbands and fathers we say, “I count, and you don’t.” That’s selfishness, “my brother. If God tells me it’s not good for me to be alone, but I insist on being a loner, then I deprive others who are in desperate need of what I have to offer. And I also hurt myself, because although I may not know it, I’m in desperate need of what they have to offer too.

“Vision is the capacity to see beyond what your eyes take in


“Vision is the capacity to see beyond what your eyes take in.

“True leadership is the manifestation of passion generated by a vision that regulates the priority and energy of a leader. The leader possesses the vision. Then the vision possesses the leader. All true visionary leaders possess a sense of destiny.
It is my conviction that leadership without vision is simply management. While the transition from manager to leader may be a natural progression, it is not an automatic promotion. In general, leaders were previously managers, but not all managers will become leaders. Managers maintain well, organize well. Leaders have vision. They make things happen. To visionary leaders, the vision is their reality and is the purpose for their leadership. It is vision that provides the momentum for leadership, and it is the end for which leadership exists. It is vision that gives meaning to leadership. Vision is the heart of leadership and is the measure of effective leadership. Vision is the inspiration of leadership. Vision gives legitimacy to leadership as it gives followers the noble justification for submitting their energies, talents, resources, and dedication to a cause. Vision provides the direction and force for leadership. Leadership begins and ends with vision.
