An average is reached when we put a group of numbers or items together and divide by two.
When used to describe someone’s ability, we refer to what is typical, common, or ordinary.
When it comes to spiritual leadership, we need to strive for more than average.

How much more should spiritual leaders exemplify the same?
We are not trying to earn anything. We follow the example of Christ and encourage others to follow. Such leadership points to our Savior.
