Battle or Bail?

Submitted by James Higginbotham on December 3, 2008 – 5:29 amNo Comment

Leadership is difficult. Not everything goes the way you want. We live in a world driven by sin. So, when things go wrong, do you battle or bail?

If you have a difficulty within the church, do you battle for your church or do you bail on your church? I’ve seen leaders do both. As one who has seen a leader bail when things get tough, it hurts.

As believers in Christ, we are required to be honorable to one another:

“Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.” – Romans 12:17 (ESV)

This need to be honorable means to do what is right. Not what feels right (bailing), but what is right (battling).

When you start working for your cause, be prepared. You will be required to make a choice between bailing or battling. Which will you choose to do?
