You have to be willing to be misunderstood if you’re going to innovate. (Jeff Bogue, pastor)
It’s generally thought that people don’t like change. The older you are, the more likely it is that you will resist change. Leaders with new ideas often have to face that reluctance; they come to understand that it is part of progress—to expect that their ideas will be resisted by some. It takes a good bit of courage and “thick skin,” maybe, to bring helpful change.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind (Romans 15:5).
