Charisma is not a quality of self-centered leaders. How much of our conversations focus on us, what we do, our family, our interests, etc.?
When leaders have charisma they add value to the lives of others. They give others hope.
While we need to know what the Bible says about sin, we need to remember the Bible is a book about hope. Jesus is our hope.
Inspiring devotion in others is built on the ability of leaders to provide that hope.
The charisma of spiritual leaders is directly related to this ability. Pride, insecurity, and cynicism destroy the ability to lead others to hope.
