Strong Leadership…

Strength applies to physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual areas of life.

Challenges occur when our strength declines, especially in the spiritual realm.

Perhaps we have seen or experienced personal struggles to remain spiritually strong and faithful.

During these times, Paul encourages Christians to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God” (Ep. 6:10-11).

Each piece of armor reveals a close relationship to God’s word. Our strength comes from what God provides us through His word.

His word helps us find the strength to lead others to our Lord.

Scars to Remember…

Most people have scars, maybe the result of surgery, an accident, or some foolish activity. At times we have emotional, mental, and spiritual scars left for the same reasons.

What do scars leave behind?

First, they remind us of what created the scar.
Second, scars remind us of physical, emotional or spiritual pain.
Third, scars show the incredible wisdom and power of God.
Fourth, scars remind us to be cautious about developing future scars.

However, the greatest reminder for leaders involves those left in the hands and feet of our Savior. These scars should always remind us of what our leadership is all about.

Leading in the Present…

The idea is about being present in the moment. It is challenging to provide good, spiritual leadership if we are not there when needed. 

But, we need to see something deeper in this idea of being present. 

Beyond the physical, the thought is one of being engaged intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.

Leaders must be present, focused on the person and/or situation. To be physically present, but unengaged leaves the impression we do not care, we are distracted, or our priorities are not in the best interest of those we lead.

Be present, in that moment and give undivided attention to the other person.
