Flexibility is a must for any organization to survive.
There are things that you must hold onto tightly. Your DNA. The combination of your mission, values, vision, purpose…or whatever buzzword(s) you want to use there.
But there are things that you can’t hold so tightly to. Jesus told a bunch of religious people this back in his day and it applies to any organization as well.
3 things we see from these 2 parables…
1. There are seasons.
Jesus tells the religious people there is a time to fast & a time to party.
We just have to discern when it is right to do each one.
Be ok with different seasons. Preparing. Planting. Growth. Harvesting. Simply know which season you’re in and take the actions associated with each season.
2. There are different molds.
Each person and each organization has different DNA.
Embrace yours. Embrace someone else’s.
3. There are new ways to do old things.
Donuts have been around for a long time. But Hurts Donut in Springfield, MO has found a new way to energize donuts.
Find what is unique about you and your organization and bring a fresh take to something old.
Lead your organization to be flexible inside who God wants you to be.
How can you utilize these 3 principles in your organization today?
This series is taking a look at the parables of Jesus and how they apply to our leadership situations. Today’s reading is Luke 5:33-39.
