There may be doubt, fear, bitterness, pride, distance, health issues, financial or resource issues, disobedience, rebellion, opposition from other people, our own insecurities or complacency that holds us back.

The Benefits of Overlooking An Offence

We’ve all been offended by the intentional or unintentional words of others. We like to nurse an offence. We like to pull it out over and over again and look at it. We like to tell anyone who will listen to us about it. We allow it to corrode our joy. Proverbs 19:11 says, “Good sense makes […]

Your Associations Determine Your Destination

One of the biggest factors in getting refuelled and staying refuelled is deciding who you allow to influence you– and in what ways you allow them to influence you. The book of Proverbs makes it clear that not only will we encounter people that are wise and supportive to our life mission, we will also encounter […]

REFUEL By Forgiving Your Debtors

Getting rid of bitterness is probably the biggest step you can take towards living freely. One preacher said that in her meetings about 80% of people say that they are carrying some sort of bitterness towards others in their hearts! We are very good at staying mad. We never want to let go of the unjust things […]

REFUEL by Recovering From Disappointment

Further criticism relates to the failure of some boards to follow their own policies. Following policies that guide the board in its own governance process, and its relationship with the CEO, is an act of self-discipline by which the board imposes checks and balances on its own power. These self-limiting policies protect staff from board actions that might get in the way of successful organizational performance. They also protect the CEO, and the board itself, from possible actions of individual board members. A board may give a false sense that it is acting in the best interests of the organization while ignoring its own policies, and therefore promotes a “veil” of legitimacy behind which it acts in capricious ways. Such a board distracts itself from the real job boards should be doing. Ultimately, whether a board remains true to its own policies is a matter for the board itself to determine. Carver notes this concern when he acknowledges that Policy Governance will not make “a bad board good”.
