10 Characteristics of the Leader God Affirms

Everyone is looking for a leader.  Schools are hiring principals and athletic directors and coaches.  Businesses and churches and ministries are looking for someone to lead their organizations. They all want leaders.  What exactly does a leader look like?  We can certainly feel the absence of good leadership!  I've seen firsthand that a team with solid leadership in the coaches, but lack of good leadership amongst the players will not handle adversity well - and how a team responds to adversity is often what separates good teams from the others. Selecting the right team captains is pivotal!

I would like to point out that there is, in my opinion, no inherent value in leadership.  One can be a bad leader.  Adolph Hitler was, by definition of having followers, a leader.  We should not seek only greatness in a leader, but goodness also.  As in all things, it is important to look beyond man's opinion and look to God.  In Ezekiel 22 in the Old Testament, John Maxwell points out 10 qualities in the leader God affirms: 

  1. Consecration: They set themselves apart and remain committed to their call.
  2. Discipline: They do what is right even when it is difficult.
  3. Servanthood: They model a selfless life, lived for the benefit of others.
  4. Vision: They see what God sees and live off the power of potential.
  5. Compassion: Love for their cause and their people moves them to action.
  6. Trustworthiness: They keep their word regardless of what others do.
  7. Decisiveness: They make good decisions in a timely manner.
  8. Wisdom: They think like God thinks and avoid impetuous moves.
  9. Courage: They take risks for what is right.
  10. Passion: They demonstrate enthusiasm for their divine calling

I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it
in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
