Beautiful Leaders…

Leaders often strive to prevent or avoid conflict, controversy, and anything difficult. 

However, Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross claims, “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

Leaders must appreciate the value of these challenges in life, developing a sensitivity and understanding that displays a compassionate and loving spirit.

When demonstrated, leaders exemplify a Christlike character worth following.

The Design of Leadership…

What is our leadership designed to do? 

We long to remain safe. We avoid challenges, controversies, and confrontations. However, remaining safe is not what leadership is designed to do. 

We are designed to lead. We often learn about those who are qualified, but unwilling to step up and take responsibility. Why? Because they feel safe where they are.

The Lord’s church needs those who will step up regardless of the challenge, controversy or confrontation.

We must not keep our ship safely in the harbor. This is not what we were designed to do. Rise up and lead!

Our God has called us to the greatest task on earth.
