This Sunday we will launch a new leadership series during Fuel that focuses on the “doing” side of leadership. This first lesson examines the leadership idea of focus preceding success. We defined this as “maintaining a single-minded focus on the chosen goal in order to experience success in one’s mission.” Focus transforms our lives, blocks out distractions, and creates entire team success. Our students will also examine the story of Noah in Genesis 6–7 and see how his focus helped save humanity. Noah is a great example of a leader who remained focused, even in the midst of great adversity.
Here are some questions you could ask your teenager about this week’s lesson to get some conversation flowing:
- What kinds of things regularly try to steal your focus and attention away from God?
- What traits or characteristics or habits define a person who is focused?
- Why do you think God wants us to be people of focus?
Have a great week!
