The reason for which something is done, created, or for which it exists: this is the definition of the word for the week and it is significant when examining one’s leadership.
What is the reason for which we lead?
How is our leadership created?
Why does our leadership exist?
These three questions should provoke thought on our part when considering our leading others.
The reason we lead needs to be for the cause of Jesus, helping others prepare to stand before the throne of the Almighty God with a confidence based on the blood of Jesus.
Our leadership is created through learning and experience. Perfection is not attainable, but we strive for it, each day learning and applying what we learn to help others.
Our leadership exists because God planned, designed, and needs His people to have the desire and motivation to assume the task of changing the world, one soul at a time.
The purpose for which people approach life may vary depending on the worldview of the individual. As Christians, however, we know that the purpose for which we exist is to glorify our God!
