Visionary Leadership: Oranges in a Seed

by Rev. Chrysantha Tillekeratne
(Veliveriya, Sri Lanka)

Today, we will further look into the subject of vision.

When you split an orange in two what do you see? Seeds! Good. But vision will make you see beyond.

Sight will count the seeds in an orange while vision counts the oranges in a seed.

Dear leader, are you living by sight without vision? That is a question you must answer before you can ever reach your full potential. Living and ministering by sight without vision will stall the glorious plans God has for your life.

If you are operating by sight, you only see the problems and challenges all around you.
When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. "Oh, my lord, what shall we do?" the servant asked.

Don't be afraid," the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."
And Elisha prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes so he may see." Then the LORD opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 15-17

Elisha’s servant saw through his natural eyes. He saw nothing but problems. But the man of God saw through spiritual eyes. He saw only victory.

Sight without vision is dangerous because it has no hope. Living by sight can kill you. Life is so full of depressing things that you need to learn to live by vision and see with the eyes of faith.

Remember that sight is the ability to see things as they are, and vision is the ability to see things as they should be.
