A Symbol of Leadership

The gavel represents a legalistic leader, decisive and dogmatic.
The eagle represents a presidential leader, representative and political.
The swastika represents a dictatorial leader, aggressive and autocratic.
The crown represents a kingly leader, superior and majestic.
The lamb represents a gentle leader, patient even when suffering.
The cross represents a sacrificial leader, purposeful and loving.

A symbol is generally a material object representing something abstract. What symbol would represent your leadership?
Would the symbol of the cross, representing the purposeful and loving sacrifice of Jesus accurately describe it?

Our leadership is worth the effort to make certain it is represented accurately and biblically.

A Tribute to a Great Leader…

Tributes to great leaders are numerous. From those who are famous to those who are personal, great leaders exist everywhere. 

My father demonstrated great leadership by the kind of friendship he demonstrated. All his friendships involved pointing people to heaven.

Nothing was more important to him. He was one of the best personal workers I have ever known. His approach and style to studying the gospel with others was one of kindness. He was gentle and patient, and his ability to lead others to an understanding of God’s word was unmatched.

May we all learn from his leadership and point others to heaven.
