Leadership DEMANDS character. Without character, your leadership will eventually collapse and fall apart, and you’ll end up taking many others with you!
3 Action Steps out of Proverbs 2:1-11:
Get His Word and commands “within you” (verse 1)
If we don’t have God’s Word within our lives, we will not have His command either. And if we don’t have His commands, we won’t have His promises. So how are you doing with getting the Word of God inside your life? Are you putting His Word in your heart so you won’t sin against Him? Try memorizing one verse this next week. Start there.
Choose “every good path” (verse 9)
This is a daily decision and commitment…to choose the good path. There are lots of opportunities out there to mess up and sink a ministry. Between ‘pride’ and ‘fear’, we have choices in every opportunity. Be on your guard at all times. Just because it looks good does not mean it is good.
Let God “protect and guard” you. (verse 11)
Don’t think you can do this on your own. Have patience to wait on the Lord and let Him be your guide and your guard. Ask for prayer. Ask for wisdom. Ask for help.
