Hear the Truth from Others

As a leader, it is vital that you surround yourself with people who are not simply “Yes” men or women.

You need people who will speak truth into your life and you must be willing to receive that truth.

Jesus gave an example of this truth-giving in what He said to the Laodicean church in Revelation 3:14-22. Although they “thought” they were doing well because they were financially stable, Jesus exposed their true state of hypocrisy.

  • Do you have people in your life who are willing to stand up and speak the truth to you in love?
  • Are you that kind of friend to other leaders?
  • When people do share information with you that might be difficult to hear, how do you respond? Do you deny it? Do you blame others? Do you accept it and determine to get better?

For study and reflection on what it means to lean on others, see the study guide:
