Here is a new 5 for this 3rd week in November. We will take a look at the centrality of Christ in church ministry, doing your best, insecurities of a leader, must have abilities of a leader, and how to protect your leadership from an affair.
7 Ways I Protect My Heart and Ministry From An Affair “It seems every day we hear of another big name celebrity, politician or pastor that has fallen into the temptation of lust and had an affair. I think it is dangerous for any leader to assume this could never happen to him or her.” This post is from Ron Edmondson and is a must read for any leader.
7 Unique Abilities of Good Leaders Here is double dose of Ron Edmondson. “Leadership is never easy. To lead well requires unique abilities.” Ron gives us seven sound abilities for solid leadership.
5 Insecurities Leaders Have To Overcome “As a leader, people naturally have high expectations of you—knowing the answer to every problem, highly reliable, calm in the face of pressure. However, leaders are still regular employees who have to accomplish tasks but with increased accountability and expectations.” This is a great post from the Lead ChangeGroup blog. There are some common insecurities and quality solutions-take a look.
Be Bold: Your “Future Best” This comes from Tim Milburn’s blog and is a guest post by Jeff Shore. “Your best is not the same as the highest you can achieve! At some point in your childhood, you were probably told to “do your best.” While not bad advice, this phrase contains some potentially negative implications.”
3 Ways Christ Can Be Outside Your Church This final post if from The Gospel Coalition Blog. “Spiritual temperature rises as Christ becomes central to the whole life and ministry of a church. And that includes a church’s preaching, mission, and fellowship.” This is a very thought provoking post by Colin Smith and a good read for any leading in spiritual endeavors.
There are the 5 for this week. Enjoy and lead well!
