The Last Word In Leadership…

Do we ever feel like we need to have the last word? 

As spiritual leaders, we need to understand who, or perhaps what, should have the last word.

Many disregard, neglect, avoid, abuse, change, or rewrite it, but God’s word remains THE source for leadership.

It provides everything for life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3).
It remains the light to direct our steps (Ps. 119:105).
It instills hope when life is filled with doubt (Ro. 5:1-5).

His word never changes! 

If we use His word in our leadership, we will always change the lives of those who follow.

A Leader’s Temperament…

Temperament involves a person’s nature as it permanently affects their behavior. What kind of nature is permanently affecting our behavior? 

There is an obvious connection to the emotional drive in our lives. This emotional drive could be related to anger or patience, an attitude of discontent or one of contentment, etc.

With both Christian and nonChristian watching every move, it seems significant to consider why we must work to develop the kind of temperament that ensures a behavior of excellence. 

Jesus identified His disciples as the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We use our words and actions to provide an example of temperament controlled by God.
