Humble Strength

April 14, 2009

As leader, having a right perspective on God-given authority will save you from two opposite errors: being apprehensive or being arrogant.

Apprehensive leaders find it difficult to embrace their authority.  They tend to be timid, indecisive, and passive.  The fear of man dominates them.  They forget that God has given them authority, and that they must take action for him.

Arrogant leaders find it difficult to moderate their authority.  They tend to be brash, overconfident, and aggressive.  The love of self dominates them.  They forget that God has given them authority, and that they must take action for him.

Remembering that your authority is given to you by God will free you to lead with humble strength.

    By the way, David, I think you balance these extremes very well, which as you said, is an evidence that you see your authority being given to you from God. Thank you for your humble leadership – it is a great example.
