Leadership Lessons from Luke 2.8-14

Posted on

God is orchestrating the necessary resources for your vision.

Verse 8 mentions that shepherds were in the same region as Mary and Joseph. God was working his plan in others in order for the vision to be fulfilled. The vision you carry, although extremely valuable, is one aspect of the overall mission.

You need resources for the vision. After all, the vision is still just a ‘baby’ one. God sized visions always begin small.

Zechariah 4.10a – “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin,…”

Your vision as a leader needs to grow at a sustainable pace. Don’t rush it. Let it grow in its time. Allow God to refine you in the process. We will see this principle hold true in the next post.

Note the detail the angel gives to the shepherds.

Luke 2.12 – “And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

You may find individuals pass by your vision because they are looking for a bigger vision. Do not let this discourage you. God is sending you the perfect resources and people who are looking for the vision you carry.

How are you caring for the ‘baby’ vision you currently hold?
