The Priority of People
In God’s Kingdom, there are no lone rangers, on islands, no individuals who do it all. Anyone who doesn’t need anyone else will be seriously limited in fulfilling the will of God for their life. Even in the natural world, people skills are more important than technical skills. Through the years I’ve known many people who had great technical skills, but their people skills were so bad that no one wanted to work with them. They were great in terms of knowledge and ability, but the general attitude was, “Go somewhere else. We don’t want to be around you.” So no matter how much vision and strategy you have, if you don’t have good people skills – the ability to relate and build good relationships, you are seriously limiting you life.
