Watch for strength

Some kids ask questions that spike your blood pressure. They’re not safe. They want to know what’s behind the curtain.

Keep your eye on those students. Pray for them and get to know them. Discover the special gifting that makes them tick. Why? You could be looking at untamed strength. Raw leadership.

Here’s a good perspective from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers From Prison:

It is the nature, and the advantage, of strong people that they can bring out the crucial questions and form a clear opinion about them. The weak always have to decide between alternatives that are not their own.
