“It’s wonderful when the people believe in their leader… but it’s even more wonderful when the leader believes in the people.” – unknown
Consider what could be accomplished with a group of people following this kind of leadership.
When leaders think and speak more in terms of “I” or “me” the results are destructive. In the end, people will not follow because there are questions of the leadership having a genuine concern for the best interest of the people.
Leaders must believe in people and invest in people. No one individual or group of individuals will be greater than the work of our Lord. One of the most powerful lessons we learn from all of scripture is “we can’t make it on our own.”
We need each other and we need our God. We need to believe in each other. Nothing could be more true for spiritual leaders.
