The High Risk Prayer by Pastor Ed Young
I want to ask you several questions right up front. You might want to jot these down. In fact, they’re so important I’ve put them on the side screens.
Here’s the first one: Can you name a person outside your family to whom you give and receive wise counsel? Can you? Think about it for a second. If you can, good for you. If you can’t, pray the high risk prayer, and put yourself in a position to meet people like that.
Here are the qualifications someone on your board of directors should have. This is straight from the Bible. Number one – they should be a Christ follower. If they just say it, does that mean they are a Christ follower? No. Don’t say, “Well, man, he goes to Fellowship Church or she goes to Fellowship. That must mean she’s a great Christian.” No, it doesn’t. If I walk into What-A-Burger, am I a hamburger? No. They must have a story. You must see their decision making track record. Number two – they must be an encourager. They must have your best interest in mind. Number three – they must be able to keep a secret. They’ve got to be confidential. Number four – they need to be the same sex as you. Those are four qualities of someone on your personal board of directors.
Here’s a second question: Are you aware of the dangers of no accountability? Are you aware of the dangers of solo decision making? Are you aware of the blind spots? Are you aware of the deep weeds? Are you aware? Are you aware of hearing the wrong thing from the wrong people? Are you aware about that?
