Whether you’re a dad, a store manager, a pastor, a small group leader, or a leader of any kind, if you’re stuck right now, my guess is that you’re asking the wrong questions.
If you want to get stuck in a rut with no sight of the sun, just keep asking the same questions over and over again. If you want to move forward, start asking different questions.
Instead of “who needs to be blamed here?” ask, “What can I do about it?”
Instead of “what can I do about it?” ask, “why?”
Instead of “why,” ask “why not?”
Instead of “why not,” ask, “Do I believe God can?” (Matthew 9:28)
Instead of asking whether you believe God can, ask “when?”
Instead of “when,” ask “now”?
Instead of “now,” ask “why am I scared”? (Matthew 8:26)
Instead of asking why you’re scared, ask, “Me?” (Isaiah 6:8)
