A Most Sublime Word

October 24, 2011

Good morning!

A leader once commented that the word duty is the most sublime word in the English language.  Nowadays it seems it is a most forgotten word.

Wikipedia gives this commentary: “. . . . [duty] is a term that conveys a sense of moral commitment to someone or something. The moral commitment is the sort that results in action and it is not a matter of passive feeling or mere recognition. When someone recognizes a duty, that person commits himself/herself to the cause involved without considering the self-interested courses of actions that may have been relevant previously. This is not to suggest that living a life of duty precludes one of the best sorts of lives but duty does involve some sacrifice of immediate self-interest.”

As a leader, you need to know your duty and to do it irregardless of how you feel and to understand that with doing your duty comes a price.

Being a leader comes with a cost – if you are not willing to pay it, then you may not need to be in a position of leadership.

Make a difference this week and advance the Kingdom of Christ!
