In Moses’ instructions to the priests, he said, “You must distinguish between the holy and common, between the unclean and the clean.”
Why? Because these men were to be leaders. He went on to say, “You must teach the Israelites all the decrees.”
If I’m going to be a leader, I must be able to distinguish.
Here’s where the Holy Spirit is challenging me. I am working on distinguishing between…
Good and Best
Acceptable and Excellent
Common and Holy
Ordinary and Extraordinary
Want and Need
Present and Participant
Quantity and Quality
I am certain that this list is just a start, and that it’s going to be a lifetime pursuit.
