Leaders aren’t born – they are developed!
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
Where do most people go to learn leadership? They search in many places including books, conferences, friends, etc. But the truth is that the best source of leadership teaching today is the same as it has been for thousands of years – the Bible. Jesus is the ultimate Leader and He calls every believer to lead others.
The crying need of the church today is leadership. The church in America is dying for lack of strong leadership. Nothing is more important than leadership. Leadership is influence – nothing more, nothing less. Everything rises and falls on leadership. This is the single most important determinant of the success or failure or any group or organization.
A follower of God should be a leader of people. The Law of the Lid states, “Leadership ability determines a person’s level of effectiveness.” Greater than resources, talent, money, or intelligence, leadership makes the difference when it comes to making an impact.
We live in an age of tolerance, where protecting feelings is more highly valued than proclaiming the truth. People look with suspicion upon anyone who desires to influence others to embrace his/her opinions. As Thomas Jefferson proclaimed, “In matters of fashion, swim with the current. In matters of conscience, stand like a rock.”
What is your favorite source of wisdom to lead your family or organization?
Are you surrendered to Jesus Christ and willing to proclaim His truth no matter what the cost?
LORD, I praise You as the greatest Leader of all time and gladly submit to Your authority. Thank You for the Bible, Your holy Word to guide me in Your ways and the paths of righteousness. Lead me as I lead others. Take captive every thought of mine to the obedience of Jesus Christ. Bless me with the mind of Christ and a broken boldness to proclaim Your truth. Thank You Jesus! Amen.
