Henry Nouwen (In the Name of Jesus) suggests that the three temptations Jesus faced (Mat 4:1-11) correspond to the temptations we face as leaders:
- Temptation to be self-sufficient (Mat 4:2-4)
- Temptation to be spectacular (Mat 4:5-7)
- Temptation to be powerful (Mat 4:8-10)
To which of these temptations are you most susceptible? How do you deal with them?
