    Good morning my dear friends in Christ!

    "Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint ove this business." - Acts 6:3

    Leadership doesn’t come overnight. It takes time, integrity, and intestinal fortitude to become a leader. Being a leader may not be easy, but it is so very spiritually rewarding to know that God is using you to have an impact in the lives of others. Myron Rush identifies tough issues facing every Christian leader in The New Leader. We are wise to ponder them slowly... #D4Ldevotion #D4L #Christian

    True and genuine leaders are quite self-sacrificial, aren't they?

    What comes to mind is Jesus, washing His disciples feet, as He ministered to them, demonstrating what true leadership is.

    And i agree with all of these:
    • You must be willing to stand alone.
    • You must be willing to go against public opinion in order to promote what you believe.
    • You must be willing to risk failure.
    • You must become master of your emotions.
    • You must strive to remain above reproach.
    • You must be willing to make decisions others don’t want to make.
    • You must be willing to say no at times, even when you’d like to say yes.
    • You must sometimes be willing to sacrifice personal interests for the good of the group.
    • You must never be content with the average; you must always strive for the best.
    • People must be more important to you than possessions.
    • You will have to work harder to keep your life in balance than people do who are not leaders.
    A true and genuine leader is courageous.

    Thank you for this thought-provoking study and meditation on this cold, wintry Friday morning in December, brother.

    God bless you.
