Gain Requires Pain

4:42 AM

Pain is irrelevant when the gain is significant.

Bible Passage: Matthew 20:17-19
17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, 18 “See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death 19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.”

I was 20 years old when I became a fan of Dora The Explorer. It definitely is an interactive educational TV program for children but is very entertaining. I would watch it every morning and became familiar with how each episode goes and ends. Dora goes to a mission with her back pack that contains almost everything she would need---and of course her ever helpful map that sings. She would meet some friends along the way and an adversary named Swiper. Dora takes her audience along with her to a mission and exploration. She would tell her audience what needs to be accomplished; show you the map to their destination and enumerate the obstacles on the road. After overcoming an obstacle, Dora reviews the obstacles passed and the obstacles anticipated. The closer you get to the destination the more enthusiasm she inspires in you.

Jesus did pretty much the same to his disciples, reviewing them of the values of their experiences and preparing them for what they are about to experience. In fact, he asked them to count the cost before signing them up to the team. Now Jesus is getting close to his destination---the resurrection. Jesus is giving his disciples the heads-up of the things that are next to take place. Whoever is not ready or committed can turn back --to object is not acceptable.

A leader with a vision is not afraid to tell his team that there is a bumpy road ahead---that there will be some scourging and crucifixion---but after that..resurrection. Showcase the gain and your team will be ready for the pain.
