Leaders who “know it all” but produce very little, is yet another means by which those who leaders others are having life sucked right out of them. The purpose of knowledge is to guide what we do. So those who claim to know everything but who produce very little are more hindrance than help. Leading people is challenging enough but leading those who claim to know but produce less than what they claim creates unnecessary suffering.
Every leader would prefer to be supported by those who take what they know, no matter how great or small and get things done with the knowledge they possess.
Biblically, knowledge and skill go hand and hand. Moses was able to get the Tabernacle built because he had individuals that did more than boast in having knowledge but who actually used that knowledge to get vision done. “And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;” (Exodus 35:30-31). This man raised up by God to help effectuate vision had not only wisdom and understanding but he possessed knowledge and it was in all manner of workmanship. In other words, he knew what to do and was able to do it!
All those reading this post in a support role this is the type of support is what gives life to your leader. Endeavor to be this kind of help if you have not been before and if you have improve and teach others to be the same.
Stay On Target!
