Some lead for the power. They simply want authority to direct and guide the movement of others.
Some lead out of crisis. When crisis strikes, people are often forced into a position of leadership.
Others lead because no one else will. Sadly, when godly leaders do not rise up, someone will, but not always in the right direction.
Still, there are others who know the joy of leading. They recognize the need, strive to develop Christlike character, and desire to save souls.
When the combination of these three elements exist, great blessings will follow.
