Galatians 5:22-23 : 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law
Aren't these two great verses to live by? In fact, can't we translate it another way to say "But the fruit of 'Leadership' is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control."? Think about it a moment.......Don't leaders need to possess these traits, and then instil them into their followers? Shouldn't leaders bring love and joy to their work; and peace and goodness to their lives? Shouldn't leaders be patient, leading with kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control? I sure think so!! But, I'm only one opinion! I'd like your thoughts!
Where do you excel? What are your strengths? Where do you need some work? What are your weaknesses? For me, I think joy, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness are all strengths of mine. But, I can tell you I sure need to work on my patience and self control! What about you? What seeds do you need to sow? What fruit do you need to bear?
