The simple price for learning is to pay attention. Leaders make mistakes and later share what they learned. We don’t need to repeat the mistakes. But when we do, we can tell others the valuable lesson.
Spiritual Leadership is not manipulative. Spiritual leaders will always point you and release you to Jesus.
“Now, are you ready for the real reason I didn’t visit you in Corinth? As God is my witness, the only reason I didn’t come was to spare you pain. I was being considerate of you, not indifferent, not manipulative.”
“We’re not in charge of how you live out the faith, looking over your shoulders, suspiciously critical. We’re partners, working alongside you, joyfully expectant. I know that you stand by your own faith, not by ours.”
2 Corinthians 1:23-24 MSG
