When A Leader Bombs

If/when a leader bombs it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Most good leaders have bombed/failed at some or many points in their life. Harry Truman is a case in point. He was noted more for his lackluster business acumen than for any success to write rave reviews about.

Yet at the time of the greatest crisis Christendom had ever known, President Truman rose to the occasion and sensible people revere his memory. I was encouraged early this morning by one his statements:

"A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities, and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties." ~ Harry Truman.

In the little outpost of perdition where I grew up an old wino mumbled through Thunderbird soaked lips, “Well, it’s all in how you look at it.” He meant essentially the same thing President Truman expressed. Jesus called upon His disciples to understand this principle when he pointed out a great harvest clothed in garments of difficulty. John 4:35 "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."

The disciples were looking at crops, Jesus was referring to people who are ripe to enter new life. This is one reason to always be ready to give reason for our hope in Christ. Tough times are opportunities.

"I received your book Outrageous Forgiveness In 30 Days. Let me tell you I couldn't put it down once I started reading it, it is awesome and really touched my heart and made me search myself. I asked the Lord to create in me a clean heart. I highly recommend this book for anyone. Shonda Johnson, Death Row, Wetumpka, AL.
