When You Can’t See the Flock for the Sheep
One of the toughest jobs of senior leadership in a church is not getting too fixated on one sheep so that you compromise the flock. It’s always a challenge to not allow any individual to sway the team. You can never lose sight of the big picture.
Like most pastors, I know almost everyone in our church. It’s easy to let my love or fear of one person to affect decisions that must be made for the betterment of the whole. God has called me to lead a flock, not just one sheep. He has called me to shepherd everyone, not just you, and the entire flock is where my heart is.
