Statistics

Statistics often provide value when collected and used correctly.

Once information is collected, statisticians categorize and examine the information to determine statistics that describe a broader section of people within a geographical location, gender, ethnic, social, economic, or religious base.

Before we write off the negative view of statistics, let us consider how these numbers can be a tool to motivate and inspire greater work for the Lord’s kingdom.

We can learn valuable information that assists in the development of our influence as leaders. Statistics help us learn more about the people we want to influence.

Leaders and Debating…

People seem to love debating. They love to debate about politics, religion, personal opinions, various convictions, and current events.

We should not be surprised; it seems to have been around for centuries of time. Socrates said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”

When pride grows, we no longer debate, but seek ways to slander our opponent in order to win.

Spiritual leaders lose credibility when they willingly attack and slander someone instead of presenting truth in love. 

We tend to think we have a responsibility to expose others for their beliefs, when in reality we need to speak the truth of God’s word.
