Max Lucado Quote for Reflection by Edwin Rodriguez, Youth Programs Intern

27 Sep

“A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.”-Max Lucado

                This quote says a lot about fulfilling what one is entitled to do. In order to do your job, you should focus on what’s most important in that precise moment. I often have trouble focusing at times and this quote gives me a new way of looking at the things I should prioritize. Especially with my position being a youth empowered leader, this quote makes all the more sense on what is most important.


                If you want to make changes in your world, focus on the people around you first, your orchestra. Don’t worry about everyone else in the world just yet. Help your orchestra of people understand what change you want to make in the world. Then they will help you in delivering this message to your audience. This relates the most to what my role was/is during Camp Anytown. All of the youth participating learned to understand what changes need to be made, and how to make them. Changes such as fighting bias or bigotry, or bullying are best made with others to help each other out. Focusing on what is most important, each other, will help in the long run.
