Have there been times when you’ve become complacent as a leader? You may not realize it at first. You establish a routine. Things seem fine until an unexpected trial comes your way. When that happens, consider the eagle (Deu 32:11-12).
As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, so the LORD alone led him, and there was no foreign god with him.
If you are a Christ-follower, your existence revolves around loving God (Deu 6:4-6). As a spiritual leader, your key responsibility is to transfer that truth to your spiritual children (Deu 6:7-9).
…thou shalt teach them diligently…
As a leader, it is easy to get preoccupied with day-to-day responsibilities. One day, you wake up and wonder who you are and how you got where you are now. In 2Corinthians 13:5, Paul advises us to examine ourselves.
