A Fine Line

I read a quote recently that said "there is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot." By the same token, there is a fine line between leadership and ambition. I have met many people with great ideas but no vision, a plan but no purpose. As leaders in the body of Christ, do we move ahead with our great ideas and our inspiring plans or do we ask God to infuse us with His vision and His purpose and then allow Him to lead us in the implementation that fits into His grander scheme? Are you standing on the shore of your life or ministry waving a pole around or are you fishing? There is a big difference.
