I recently read an article entitled “10 Proverbs for Leaders” by Eric Geiger. In this article, Geiger highlights ten wise sayings that should impact the way leaders lead from the Book of Proverbs. He writes, “Because our faith should impact every aspect of our lives, including our leadership, we find great truth within the Scripture that should form how we live—including how leaders lead.” As I read this article, my mind immediately paralleled this with verses specific to circumstances often faced by Christian event planners. Because our faith should impact every aspect of our lives, including our event planning, we find great truth within the Scripture that should form how we live—including how event planners plan.
I hope you find these proverbs helpful as you go through the ins and outs of your event planning.
