As a leader, a question needs to be answered. What is the real payoff for our leadership?
There are several answers, but here is a thought.
The real payoff comes when the lives of followers change. This is what our leadership is all about. We are trying to change lives, eternally.
When we examine the work of Jesus at the cross, the payoff is witnessed in the lives changed around the world.
Spiritual leadership is not about seeking fame, popularity, and wealth. The payoff is summed up in the people who will see heaven because of our leadership.
