A word to leadership teams

A word to leadership teams
Acts 20: 38 “What grieved them most was his statement that they would never see his face again. Then they accompanied him to the ship.”

There are times when leadership teams will feel grief over the decision of their leader. That is exactly how Paul’s team felt. His decision to leave them and to also tell them he wouldn’t be back was hurtful.
For some leaders they would back off and say if you are going that way then I cannot come. They would perhaps resign and begin following someone else, but not this team. They walked down to the ship with Paul. They went with him as far as was possible.
Sometimes we need to follow leaders all the way. We might not understand everything, we might even disagree, but we have to accompany them, trusting God that His leader has heard from Him.
It takes courage to keep following when you do not understand or do not want to.
Keep following and keep serving.
