I bet you have heard this many times… “Be reasonable.”
Truthfully, under many circumstances, “Be reasonable” is sound advice—but not always.
As Christian leaders, there are times to be unreasonable.
- When you pray, you might ask God to do something most consider impossible or unreasonable. Pray unreasonable prayers.
- When you seek God, He might lead you to do something others consider undoable. Empowered by God, do unreasonable things.
- When you lead, some people might think you’re making unreasonable demands. Lead passionately and pull unreasonable results out of reasonable people.
Being unreasonable all the time would certainly be a mistake. But if you aren’t being unreasonable every now and then, you probably aren’t leading by faith.
