Last week one day I had the pleasure of sitting down with another young female leader. I love these conversations because I usually discover another kindred spirit. With a fellow female leader I’m rarely short on words… just short on time.
About mid-way through our conversation she asked me a very troubling question:
“As a leader with all you have to do to lead others, how do you make time for your own personal spiritual growth?”
“If we’re leading but we’re not closely following Christ, we are misleading.”
Do you know how the dictionary defines misleading?
Leaders, that’s a huge responsibility!
It’s easy for our spiritual walk to become a part of our “work”. How often do you sit down to read or study God’s word for simply the purpose of hearing from him? Not for a sermon. Not for a blog post. Not for a book concept. Not for a twitter quote.
I only ask because I’m incredibly guilty of that myself.
Our spiritual health is essential for us to lead as God has called us to.
Will you join me this week in reading and studying God’s Word just to hear from Him, with no other agenda?
