Don’t Drop the Ball

When Eve brought the forbidden fruit to Adam, Adam dropped the ball. 

  • Adam didn’t listen to God, but went along with Eve’s bad idea (Gen 3:6).
  • When God confronted Adam, Adam blamed what he did on Eve (Gen 3:11-12). 

Spiritual leadership requires us to take responsibility for what we do.

Do you take responsibility for how you influence your family members, your work associates, and your fellow Christ-followers?

Don’t drop the ball!


Are You Born to Lead?

God made us in His image with the intent that we would be leaders (Gen 1:26). 

  • He gave both men and women the ability and authority to lead (Gen 1:27). 
  • He told us to rule over the earth, not one another (Gen 1:28). 
  • God made each of us unique with different gifts and temperaments. This enables us to lead in our areas of giftedness by using those gifts to serve others (1Pet 4:10). 
  • When we do that, we influence them. That’s leadership.
