Look for the One Thing
Before placing anyone in a leadership position, discover their One Thing. Their One Thing is the foundation everything else is built on. Once I find my One Thing, I know who I am.
My personal One Thing is my connection with Jesus. That’s the only scalable, sustainable One Thing I’ve found that’s worth living and dying for.
Paul taught in 2 Timothy 1, “And God chose me to be a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News. That is why I am suffering here in prison. But I am not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust.”
Ask a lot of questions and observe them for awhile, but in your future leaders be sure you know the One Thing that drives them.
