I am a part of what I have classified as the sandwich Generation. The sandwich generation is the bridge between the dying fathers and the rising sons. It is our Generation that is establishing trends, carrying leaders/politicians, church and business leaders forward and beginning to birth sons of our own. It is also our generation that has been raised with a bastard mentality because of a lack of true spiritual, true and solid fathering. We were the first technologically advanced generation that could use technology as a spring board to display the anointing on our lives. We have not been able to be hindered by propaganda, useless rhetoric or out dated political and religious principles. We were told things such as in order to be validated as leaders we needed leadership succession. The issue was that many of the leaders telling us this did not have leadership succession themselves, that is why they are what they are today, reckless, heartless and careless leader. Our generation was the first to truly question the authenticity of our leader’s credentials, be they church leaders, politicians and business leaders alike. This is not being done out of rebellion but it is being done out of necessity to survive.
I am thankful for leaders that we have who attempt to share wisdom and insight with emerging leaders who will become the next leaders of this decaying generation. A set of leaders who are tech savvy and connected to a global community is exactly what this generation is looking for. A set of leaders who understand what it means to be a prince in the politics, business and also churches and use their title to restore prominence to society instead of holding new leaders hostage to outdated political and business thoughts. Who shall mentor the rising leaders of our times and tomorrow, and how will they be prepared when those in office kick them far away from being apprenticed into greatness.
Now we need mentor to mentor not just in an institutional setting but in life and societies in general. It is time that our leaders reach out and extend help to emerging leaders instead of judging them for their lack of regard for the good old boys club. We are not asking to be accepted we are attempting to do the work of mankind worldwide. I am not silly enough to believe that the rise in titles are simply a response to the call of life, but for many that is simply what is happening.
