Hence when we make introduction or acknowledge the presence of a speaker, it is sometimes with a lot of awe coupled with some fear and trembling” to the detriment of sometimes neglecting the “The Giver” of the gift.
This fine line can also present a hindrance when circumstances warrant the confrontation of a leader who has not done the right thing.
There are perfect examples of organizations that have since “bit the dust” as the fear of confrontation has been a stumbling block to performing due diligence on their operations.
Revelation 19 v 9 – 10, highlights a similar scenario and the response given by the one who possessed the gift:
Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ “And he added, “These are the true words of God.” At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
The Giver of everything is God and we pray for the grace not to forget to acknowledge him in all things.
Shalom – Love Never Fails
