STOP AND THINK – Anyone can steer the ship but it takes a leader to chart the course. (John Maxwell, leadership speaker and author)
Maxwell calls this “The Law of Navigation. The functions of “steering” and “leading” are similar but quite different. Give the helm to a seaman with clear instructions as to where he is to go, and he can probably bring the ship to its destination. But someone has to chart the course, to map the route (for landlubbers). And the charting is done by a qualified leader.
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory (Psalm 73:24).
