Early Education News & Nuggets
In your early education program, are you experiencing a culture of scarcity or abundance? Maybe you have had some financial influx with increased enrollment or emergency or incentive funds, but at the same time are experiencing staffing shortages. As we come out of the month focused on thankfulness and head into a month of celebration, I feel encouraged to keep this mindset of gratitude in every area of my life and work. After recently attending FSi in Atlanta, I am reminded of one part of the Zone of Blessing that Dr. Scott Rodin shared with Christian school leaders. He said that as school leaders, we have to create an “abundance culture.” Our faithful God always has enough to accomplish His work! Do we recognize that the great needs we see around us will be provided for if we give thanks to God for what we have? In Luke 9:12-16, before Jesus attempted to feed the masses, He prayed over the little bit of fish and bread he had and gave thanks for it. God did the rest! Our Good Shepherd takes care of us so that we “have everything we need” (Psalm 23:1). Do you and your team have a scarcity mindset of lacking, of feeling like there are not enough resources, and an ownership of the program OR do you have an abundance mindset that is content, generous, and sees yourself as the steward of all that God entrusts to you? How do you share that Abundance Culture with your board, leadership team, faculty and staff, students, parents, and community?
Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, every good thing that You have promised us through thy Holy Word, we believe Lord Jesus that you are more than able to fulfill them for us. -Ephesians 3:20
