Dobson resigns

After more than 30 years at the helm of Focus on the Family, James Dobson has resigned as president and CEO.  He has been a monument of Christian discipleship and integrity since before I was even born.  He is a great example to all who would attempt to lead others to follow Jesus.

“One of the common errors of founder-presidents is to hold to the reins of leadership too long, thereby preventing the next generation from being prepared for executive authority”

It takes a lot of maturity and humility to have an attitude like this. Reminds of a post I read from Perry Noble awhile back that said something like: The innovation that I implement today will be the policies I try to undo down the road (loosely paraphrased). No strategy is forever. We have to constantly tweak our approach to be effective. We can’t let our pride create stagnation when the cause demands we adapt! Our task of directing people to follow Jesus is too important to fail!

    Well, I whole-heartedly agree. I LOVE James Dobson. I admire him and take any advice he gives. He exemplifies faithfulness. Does this mean he won’t be on the radio??

    Ok, I just saw that he’ll still be on the radio. I’m relieved!
