Laurence Peter coined the phrase the “Peter Principle” when he noted the concept of managers being promoted to the level of their incompetency. Peter wrote the book The Peter Principle: Why Things Always Go Wrong.
The good news is that Laurence Peter’s book is not the Peter Principle you have been called to. Jesus had a Peter Principle too. He called Peter to feed his lambs, love his lambs, and feed his sheep. This is what you are doing and this is a high calling!
When you care for your employees, customers, neighbors, and family, you are shepherding their lives. You are carrying out the best promotion ever given to a person by Jesus… Shepherd well! — Jon Sharpe
