leaders who don’t last 2

26 Jun

Proverbs 6: 30-33 describes a person who commits adultery ‘Men do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving…But a man who commits adultery lacks judgement; whoever does so destroys himself. Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his same will never be wiped away.’

Recently, a church leader in the States admitted adultery. His story is in a link below. Leaders who don’t last are starving for something: fame; power; affirmation; passion; approval… They have to feed the hunger, the desires. They feed them with lies and deception; pain for others as the only pain that matters is their own.

The Lord will forgives as they, as we turn, toward Him but there is a consequence that can never be ‘wiped away.’ Your leadership can only be in humble, quiet service. Not in the front but in the back. And that is a beautiful place.

No tweets; no explanations needed.

Only loving service. This lasts.
