Leadership Is Purposefully Choosing Whom You Will Disappoint

“You can please all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time.” … As a leader, Jesus was willing to disappoint everyone except his Father…

In our elder meetings we had to ask, “Who are the people we are willing to disappoint?” Healthy churches work purposefully to disappoint religiously entitled people… Jesus chose to disappoint. We found that he disappointed those who wanted religion—even Christian religion— on their terms.
