Leading in the dark.

Jesus tells a story about a business owner who entrusted people with shares of his business. Those who invested it and managed it wisely were given more. This applies not just to money but also wisdom and clarity.

But the one who manages it wisely is given more.
Pastor Larry Osborne calls this the dimmer principle. Much like a dimmer switch on a light, the more right decisions we make, the brighter the path gets.

Not sure what business will look like next year? Serve the next person like they are the last.
Not sure what your marriage will look like in 5 years? Love your spouse like they matter more than you.
Wondering if you should plant a church, serve on the board, or lead an area of ministry? Start by introducing yourself to someone sitting alone on Sunday.
Keep doing the next right thing, and watch as the lights slowly get brighter.
