Leader encouragement.

As a coach, leading my students who listen well, accept direction and apply themselves gain much praise and attention. However, the rebellious students who do the opposite of whatever I say stretch my patience and cause me to grow in ways I never imagined. In a perfect world, well-behaved students would fill my classes, but we don’t live in that kind of world.

Whether leading students, children, or employees, those who make our life easier receive favor. Becoming better leaders means learning to handle difficult people and the well-behaved, giving each person our best, regardless of performance.

Looking at life from Jesus’ perspective, we all misbehave, yet He loves us equally. Christ didn’t die for perfect people; He died for the imperfect.

One of my best students threw her racquet in frustration. Shocked, I had to address her behavior for the first time.   She reminded me that we all sin and fall short of the mark. Yet God loves us and sent Jesus to save us.

Performing well brings favor, but God saved us with undeserved grace, even in our sins.

Lord, forgive us for favoring those easy to lead. Help us learn to love everyone equally, despite their performance, understanding that we each have a unique purpose. Guide and direct us as we lead others, helping to represent Christ well in all we do. IJNIP. Amen
