Does leadership influence culture, or does culture influence leadership? There is a great deal of controversy over the answer.
There are times when it seems the culture influences leadership. At other times, leadership influences culture, as with Harry Truman during World War II.
Amazingly, the definition of leadership often changes in relationship to the culture and the current leadership.
While we may never have a definitive answer, one thought is clear: God intends spiritual leaders to influence the culture and not the reverse.
The task before us is to be the influence in our world. We must arise and accept the challenge with courage and boldness.
