“He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32
Many of Us Leaders are the Microwave Generation
I can still remember our first microwave. I was born in 1981, but we were poor and didn’t finally get a microwave till the mid-eighties. I probably will eventually have side effects from staring for hours as it warmed food or cooked popcorn. It was so fast! There was so little effort before, during or after. THIS, I thought, is what life should be like! But, of course, this isn’t what real life is like.
