Scared or Sacred?

Why is leadership so scary? Knowing that leaders deal with answering questions pertaining to goals, plans, maintaining morale, personality conflicts, providing resolution, etc., it does not take long to determine why the ground upon which leadership stands can be a scary place.

How do we overcome scared ground for sacred ground? God will help us overcome many challenges. Prayer helps us reach a more sacred footing rather than a scared one. Studying faithful people, such as in Hebrews 11, will also help us as we approach sacred ground.

It may not seem like much, but it is a start and sometimes getting started is half the battle.


Enoch “walked with God.” Just saying those three words should make our hearts and minds race.

Every spiritual leader needs to be characterized by their walk with God. How powerful would be if our eulogy were simply summed up as one who “walked with God?”

The beauty of Enoch’s walk with God is explained in the book of Hebrews. The conclusion is significant: Enoch’s walk with God was a life characterized by faith.

Hebrews 11 explains that a walk of faith is one of seeking God, obedience to His word, and trusting in His providence to help us receive what is promised.

Leadership Skill-Set…

A person’s range of abilities makes up their skill-set. Leaders must use this range of abilities to assist in leading others. 

A couple of facts to remember.

1) Every leader has a skill-set.

2) Some skill-sets are natural, while others are learned.

3) Leaders must constantly work to develop, maintain, and grow their skill-set.

4) The greater the skill-set, the greater potential for strong leadership.

A study of people who are men and women of faith, e.g. Hebrews 11, provides a great starting point for learning the skill-set(s) most helpful for leadership.

These type of leaders will encourage leadership development in others.
