Without Vision the people perish

The old proverb says that without vision the people perish; or as some say, without vision the people wander aimlessly.
We spent some time with our leadership team today speaking about the vision of our church for next year, and the years to come. Why? Well, without a clear vision, it is so easy to wander aimlessly. It is so easy to merely work and work, and become busy 'doing' lots of things, and the question is whether you are achieving what you should be achieving. A vision keeps you on track. A mission statement highlights what your main purpose is, but a vision gives you an idea of the preferable future for your organisation.

A vision also motivates the troops. Without a dynamic vision, people will wander aimlessly not really understanding their purpose within your organisation. A vision helps people be on the same page, and to be striving for the same goals. A good vision will ignite passion in you to see change and transformation. A good vision will see people signing up to be a part of it.

The challenge is today: Don't let people, organisations, churches, wander aimlessly because there is no vision. Get a hold of the preferred future and communicate the vision to your people.
