People lined the streets “laid [the sick] on beds…that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them” (Acts 5:15). When was the last time people lined up outside your office hoping to simply touch your shadow?
In spite of his popularity, Peter singularly focused on the mission. He didn’t let an inflated ego get the best of him.
- As a leader, how do you keep your ego in check?
- Do you have people in your life who will tell you what you NEED to hear instead of what you WANT to hear? If not, befriend some people who will tell you the truth in love. Your leadership and legacy depend on it!
Remember, God calls us to “…be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’ Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God…” (1Pet 5:5-6).
