For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men. Titus 2:11
Dr. Lew Sterett, the Horse Whisperer, was in Rapid City one week ago. He helped Major, the colt, progress through the five steps of GRACE.
G – Grow the vision. Dr. Lew helped Major see the big picture.
R – Reinforce the boundaries. Dr. Lew made the fence disappear because of their relationship as Major trusted Dr. Lew more and more.
A – Await the response. Dr. Lew was very patient with the Major. Major became more responsive and less reactive.
C – Coach to excel. Major became more obedient because of Dr. Lew’s affirmation and consistency.
E – Ensure ther victory. It was a win-win situation for Major and Dr. Lew because of Dr. lew’s leadership.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. (2 Peter 3:18)
Are you leading by grace?
How can you be more gracious?
Lord, help us to be gracious leaders in our homes, our work, and our churches. Amen
