True Leadership

Wow, this is a convicting and challenging quote from "Record of Christian Work" May 1909:
The way to stimulate and provoke others unto good works is to strive to outrun them in the race. The way to rebuke the cold and indifferent is to be always full of zeal and abounding in the work of the Lord yourself. Men will be much more ready to answer a call to come up to your level, than a command to advance beyond you.

God help me! We hear a lot of talk about leadership these days. I think this is what true leadership is all about!

  1. This is very true. The leaders who have challenged and influenced me the most have been those who have convicted me most by their lifestyle.

    Thanks for sharing this great quote. Blessings.
