Reflect on the following actions that can help you become the leader God desires.
Would you like to be a leader who is set apart from the crowd? Read 1Peter 1:13-16. Consider how you can apply the following four suggestions for being a leader who is set apart from the crowd.
- Gird your Mind: Prepare your mind. Remember, you answer to God (Job 38:3 and Eph 6:14).
- Give your Attention: Be sober. Pay attention to what’s happening and cry out to God when you get off track (1The 5:6 and 1Pet 5:8).
- Guard your Heart: Rest your hope. The more you focus on your future inheritance, the more joy you will have (Rom 15:12-13 and Php 4:7).
- Guide your Behavior: Behave to please God. Every step you take toward becoming like Christ pleases Him (1The 2:12 and Eph 6:6).
