Good and Bad Leadership

Last Sunday we considered how to identify and be good leadership rather than bad.

Who were good leaders? Obviously Jesus. What did he do? Spent time with God, healed and taught the multitude, and invested heavily in the 12 — to bring them to leadership. Moses. Spent time with God, handed down the law to create a people, judged the people, and created a leadership structure. Paul. Not smooth, not always polite, argued with other leaders. Spent time with God, had revelations, went out and founded lots of churches, wrote, and mentored leaders. Deborah. Judged Israel. Was a wife and mother. Directed the generals, Prophesied. Celebrated volunteers. Check it out.

So good leaders follow God. Good leaders feed the sheep, rather than eat them. Good leaders develop other leaders. Check out Zechariah 10 & 11. And read closely Ephesians 4:11-13 or so.

Oh, you should have been there. We are small enough that you get to ask questions during the sermon!
