Your business has grown and you’ve realised you need to hire a new Managing Director to grow it to the next level. What is the most important quality you would look for? Would you prefer a person who is ambitious and visionary,  willing to do whatever it takes to get your company to the top?


Jesus was the biggest story of his day. Wherever he went, huge crowds were waiting for him. For his disciples, this was exciting.

If you were to participate in this opinion poll, what are the top three issues you would say you are concerned about? I imagine if a similar poll had been conducted in Israel in the times of Moses, the top three problems would have been an oppressive government, miserable working conditions and a rising cost of living.
