DetailsLeaders look forward to what is ahead, rather than being weighed down by what is behind. Those who are following want to know where to go and what to do, and the only way to find that out is to look ahead. As you look forward to a new ministry year, you might be wondering what will happen over the next months. Learn from what happened in the past, but keep your eyes fixed on the prize. In this lesson, students will read how Joseph kept his eyes fixed on the future, rather than focusing in on the bad things that happened in the past. Students will learn that God gives us experiences in our past to shape us, and that leadership requires us to look forward.
