Peter tells us to serve as good role models and not treat those in our care harshly (1Pet 5:2-3).
One lesson from John the Baptist’s life is that he was a humble leader. He pointed others to Him “who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose” (Mark 1:7).
Humble but strong leaders, resolute in their values and beliefs, make a lasting impact. Jim Collins, in his book “Good to Great,” says that this kind of leader is at the top of the leadership pyramid. Here are some questions to ask yourself.
As a leader, you will interact with others of varying stages of spiritual development.
As you mature spiritually, you gain a better grasp on the extent of your liberty in Christ as well as the responsibility that brings.
In what way could your behaviors become a stumbling block to others (Rom 14:19-22)?
