Leaders must accept responsibility. 1 Chronicles 21:7-8

Let the Lord be your leader. Jeremiah 17:7-8

Leaders must be servants. Matthew 20:26-28

Qualifications of a good leader (Titus 1:7-9):

  • Live a blameless life because you are God’s minister
  • Must not be arrogant
  • Must not be quick-tempered
  • Must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or greedy for money
  • Must enjoy having guests in his home
  • Must love all that is good
  • Must live wisely and be fair
  • Must live a devout and disciplined life
  • Must have a strong and steadfast belief in the trustworthy message he was taught, then be able to encourage other with right teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong

SERVE people, don’t abuse them. Matthew 20:27

Fasting and praying shows character. Matt 6:16-18

Listen more than you talk. James 1:19

Don’t compare yourselves with others. Matthew 18:1-6; Galations 6:4

Don’t try to control situations. Do what you’re good at: set up the situation, then just sit back and relax and observe God in the lives of your peers.

 

I felt this would be a good post to re-visit, because throughout my church we’ve been talking about leadershipAnd so… I thought it would be best to go back and figure out what the Bible said about leadership.  All too often we look at models from other businesses and other churches and we forget what the real vision for leadership is in the Bible.

…Thoughts?
