Leaders give of their time and ability. They possess a willingness to help others reach their greatest potential for God and His church.
Leaders are also selfless. While the ideas are interrelated and it can become difficult to distinguish them, the difference is the action of one and the motivation in the other.
Effective leadership makes the sacrifice, but the reason they make it is the selfless heart of God’s servant.
William Barclay once said, “Always give without remembering; always receive without forgetting.”
The thought speaks to actions and motives. It should motivate us to lead this way.
