A leader must be a student. Obviously, there are many areas to study. From a spiritual leadership perspective, we live in two worlds.
We must know the world we live in physically. We need to know the challenges people face who live in this world. We need to know the struggles and trials encountered.
We must also know the world we live for spiritually. Because we have never been there, it can be difficult. We must rely on the information provided in God’s word. Therefore, we must be a student of His word.
All we say and do now is building a foundation for a world to come.
