Joyful Life. Fruitful Leadership.
What do vines and vineyards have to do with leadership?
Thrive Leadership develops effective and healthy leaders using the 8 principles of Less Is More Leadership. By doing less, but doing more of the right things for the right One, you can have more fruit in your ministry and more joy in your life.
John 15 : 1-11, the famous vineyard passage, teaches us how to bear much fruit by abiding in Christ as a branch abides in the vine. And when the branch bears fruit, the vinedresser prunes it so it may bear more fruit. Without pruning, the vine will waste valuable resources to keep extra, non-fruitful foliage alive. But when it is pruned, the vine can channel all its resources, water, nourishment into fruitful branches and growing more fruit. Sometimes to get more, we have to cut back.
Pruning is not easy and it can be painful at times, but God promises that through this "[His] joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full" (NASB).
So there you have it...more fruit, more joy!
