Based on experience, most students prefer to skip tests.
However, tests are biblical and spiritual leaders will face them throughout their leadership.
Abraham is an example. God tested Abraham by commanding him to offer his only son, Isaac, as a burnt offering.
The New Testament letter from James speaks about the testing of our faith. The result produces endurance which leads to completeness.
With this in mind, how should leaders respond when tested?
Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance.
Read God’s word and focus on the purpose.
Seek counsel from leaders who have passed tests.
Trust God’s use of tests to make us into His leaders.
