People lead for different reasons. At times, the situation (crisis) demands someone lead.
However, selfish ambition motivates far too many. The desire to personally benefit from a position of power is appealing in both the secular and spiritual arena.
When people lead with the right motives, the result is powerful.
Developing this motive consists of three components.
1) Personal and familial relationship with Christ.
2) Understanding scripture, both the milk and meat of God’s word.
3) Compassion for people’s eternal condition, saved and lost.
These help us check and develop the motive godly leaders should possess.
