Dear LWML Leaders,
Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves (Philippians 2:3).
The key to biblical leadership lies in keeping our eyes on the goal. The goal is to honor and worship God by serving others. The only way we are going to be able to do that correctly is if we value people the way Jesus did.
The role of a leader is full of snares: self-glorification, posturing, greediness, empty ambition, etc. Consciously choosing to enhance others’ God-given skills and abilities as we lead is the better way to give God the glory.
