If Leaders Embrace the Tension

If Leaders Embrace the Tension

Have you ever tried to avoid the feeling of tension? We often try to escape conflict or tension in our lives. But, Jesus dwelled in the tension. When Jesus was asked a closed-ended, “yes or no” question he often didn’t answer directly with a “yes or no”. He elevated the discussion to a kingdom principle, and he created an opportunity where people could have a change of heart. We too are called to be tension dwellers. What if instead of avoiding tension in our lives, in our conversations, in our small groups, we asked God to make us tension dwellers so that we could help be a part of creating change?
