Leadership Tips

Dear LWML Leaders,

Our Tips for Leading with Confidence are focusing on Scripture. Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.

I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:12–13).

Too often people quote Philippians 4:13 as if it stands alone. But Paul is setting himself up as an example of contentment in leadership. Paul learned that his strength and contentment came through the Lord working in him.

We can’t look at our current experience to gauge God’s pleasure or the effectiveness of our work. Sometimes we will experience comfort and sometimes we will suffer want. The key is to find our contentment in serving to God's glory.

God's Blessings,
