The Pressure of Leading…
What creates pressure? Confrontation? Health problems? Finances? Family issues? Spiritual conflict?
Why do we feel pressure? Fear? Guilt? Regret? Conviction?
Leaders will always face pressure. Spiritual leadership further increases this pressure because of the eternal consequences weighed in the balance of each decision.
However, when the fear of pressure prevents us from dealing with issues, we are only delaying greater pressure with graver consequences.
As the song encourages, “Rise up O men of God! Have done with lesser things. Give heart and mind and soul and strength to serve the King of kings.”
Accept that pressure exists, but address it with biblical focus.
