Leaders deal in hope. This does not mean controversial challenges or issues are eliminated from leadership. Also, it does not mean problems in relationships disappear.
If anything, these will always continue to plague the lives of leaders and followers.
The difference is found in hope.
Do not be quick to rebuke.
Do not be the first to look at the negative.
Do not condemn.
Spiritual leaders have the privilege of providing the greatest answer for the ills so characteristic of humanity!
Hope lifts the spirit out of the pits of despair.
Hope provides a promise of something better.
Hope strengthens the will to survive.
Hope encourages the oppressed.
