Climbing The Leadership Mountain…Part 6

Climbing the leadership mountain involves many steps, but the next step is one that hits close to the heart; “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

Our words and actions are guided by the motives of our heart. When the motives are right, the words and actions usually follow. Jesus taught that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

The motives behind our leadership are worthy of an examination, especially when we consider the consequences on the line.

What are some of the motives that move people to lead? Power? Prestige? Money? Control? Achievement? Perhaps we could all add to this list, but another question must be asked.

What motives are found among those who fulfill the role of spiritual leadership? Compassion? Love for souls? Desire to please God?

The list could go on, but we understand the necessity of making sure our motives align with biblical principles that help us accomplish God’s will.

Each step up the leadership mountain brings us closer to the pinnacle of God’s plan and purpose for leading others toward the kingdom.
