Discerning or Deciding
I have been doing a lot of thinking over these past few months about how our NAB missional journey makes a practical difference in how we lead in our jobs. If missional theology is a renewed understanding of God, and if this clearer understanding of God will shape our behavior, then I should be able to point to some new behaviors in my life. One of the ways my behavior is changing is in the realm of making decisions.
We have all heard the saying that goes something like this: “Tough decision. That’s why we pay you the big bucks.” This little quip exposes something important about decisions—we believe that one of us is ultimately responsible. The buck stops with the individual who holds positional authority. With power comes responsibility.
