One of the great myths of leadership is the positional myth, i.e. “I cannot lead unless I have a position, or once I have a position then I will be able to lead.”
While we do not have to have a position to lead, this position comes with a responsibility. Spiritual leaders are positioned with a responsibility, a responsibility to help others…
…understand there is hope for the future.
…reach their full potential in spiritual maturity.
…obtain their eternal inheritance.
Several years ago, I heard this equation: ability + opportunity = responsibility. After some thought, doesn’t it sound like a good position?
