Leaders must have their own principles for making decisions. Some leaders claim to start the decision-making process with these three questions: What is our current state? What is our shared vision? How to realize the vision from the current state? There are other similar guidelines: What are our strengths? What are the constraints of the environment? How to break through the constraints with our strengths?

As my the leaders of my kids and the teachers in the School, I also have three questions to judge a strategy’s appropriateness: Does it put my kids’ interests first? Can it foster my teachers’ professional growth? What does God say? The third question is crucial because: “His word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105.” But after a year of leading a Christian community, I find that there may be a change in the priority. Is it more appropriate to find out what does God say first?
