Leadership Lessons From Luke 1.46-56

Posted on

Your vision is meant to compliment another vision.

Singing fills the atmosphere as Mary encounters Elizabeth and her child. I’m not sure I’ve ever had anyone sing upon entering a room with me in it. Mary expresses great joy upon discovering Elizabeth is pregnant and that she will share in this same experience.

Just as a finely tuned orchestra, our vision plays in harmony with the bigger purpose. Vision in a leader’s life is always more exciting when that leader discovers others are pregnant with vision also. This holds especially true when another’s vision is to compliment yours and vice versa.

God looks upon Mary as a carrier of great vision due to her being able to lead herself. Verse 48 tells us this as Mary sings, “he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.” In other words, she was living right before God prior to receiving vision.

We must be able to lead ourselves before we can lead others.

1.56 – “And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.”

Mary and Elizabeth talk. They discuss how the visions will work together for a greater good. They pray together, laugh, serve and hope. There is no jealousy of the other’s vision. Each is assigned a specific task.

God has given you vision as a leader. It’s time to discover how this vision compliments others as they walk pregnant with vision.
