Iâ€™ve heard it said that people donâ€™t care how much you know until they know how much you care. If you can convince people that you really care about whatever it is you wish to lead them in, they will follow. You can spout off any number of statistics, drop any number of names, and make any number of promises. But if you donâ€™t follow through, then all you are is a lot of hot air and people wonâ€™t follow you because you havenâ€™t shown them that you care.
Jesus is a perfect example of a true leader. He had a passion to see the kingdom of God at work in the lives of every man and woman. His purpose was to make a way for them to be reconciled to the Father in order to see His kingdom at work in their lives. And when it came to the bottom line He was willing to roll up His sleeves â€“ or should I say spread His arms wide â€“ and give it His all to see it succeed.
Is there something that you have given your life to and would do anything and everything to see it come to pass? If there is then you have passion. But passion is not enough.
Does this passion of yours have a purpose? Is it something that will make a true difference in this world? If it does then you have purpose. But passion and purpose are not enough.
The thing that people want to know isâ€¦do you care? Will your passion and purpose be of some help to someone? Will it bring a change for the good in the lives of others? Will you be there to see it through to the end? Are you willing to roll up your sleeves and give it your all to see it succeed? If you are then you have passion, you have purpose, but most of all, you have shown that you care for something and someone besides yourself and your agenda. And thatâ€™s what people want to seeâ€¦that you care.
