“Suffer Fools Gladly” – Saint Paul; 2 Corinthians, Chapter. 11
As with all theological scriptures, those three words can be subject to various interpretations. Rather than analyze St. Paul’s intentions of 2,000 years ago, let’s consider those three words in the context of leading others in today’s world.
Easier Said than Done: All leaders encounter people with thoughts and ideas we’re inclined to label as foolish. It’s hard to imagine being glad about it. Perhaps you have the authority to fire or relegate the fools in your midst. Or, contrary to the urging of St. Paul, you want to do so.
