Every day, we strive to be the best leaders we can be. Leadership is foundational for success in any setting, from business and ministry to personal life. However, being a leader in today's world poses numerous challenges, as we frequently lose sight of what authentic leadership entails.
In this episode, Tim reminds us of what makes good leadership. When we make mistakes or falter as a leader, we must always fall back on the importance of our relationship with God. By reflecting on what God wants us to do, we can see the path toward effective leadership more clearly than before.
Listen to the episode to learn how good leadership is linked to stewardship and seeking God's heart.
[08:45] "I believe that often what we’re doing with leadership is we’re trying to do something like the nation of Israel was doing in the book of Samuel. We’re begging for something that is not the perfect will of God. It’s God’s permissive will." - Click Here to Tweet This
[12:59] "First of all, I want to put the responsibility on us, as people that attempt to have leaders that we expect more out of than we should. (…) We really make idols out of leaders. When someone becomes an idol, then I think we’re heading for some type of failure or challenge. First of all, that’s on us. We need to be cautious of that." - Click Here to Tweet This
