19 Although I am a free man and not anyone’s slave, I have made myself a slave to everyone, in order to win more people. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win Jews; to those under the law, like one under the law — though I myself am not under the law — to win those under the law. 21 To those who are without that law, like one without the law — not being without God’s law but within Christ’s law — to win those without the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some. (1Cor 9:19-22, HCSB)
Leaders can do great things…but only when they lead a team. One person is severely limited in the impact they can make, and will probably burn out. You must learn to empower, encourage, train and delegate to be a good leader.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
Character, wisdom, understanding culture, they are all limited if you can’t lead others. Leading a team is the culmination of your growth as a leader, and often your most challenging task. Too many people call themselves leaders, but can’t manage others well. We must intentionally learn the art of leading others so we make the impact God has called us to make.
He who has God and everything
Has no more than
He who has God alone. ~ C.S. Lewis
The poorest man I know is the man who has nothing but money. ~ John D. Rockfeller
Faith will be challenged—not simply to give it up, but to compromise what we believe.
We must learn to define and defend our faith—to have an answer for the people who question our faith and to have a clear definition of the core things that make up our faith.
