Here is a list of Jesus’ criticisms about the religious and political leaders of his day:
They did not practice what they taught others (Hypocrisy).
They put heavy burdens on others but not on themselves (Legalism).
They sought and loved public recognition (Pride).
Status, respect and titles were important to them (Arrogance).
They locked people out of the kingdom (Judgmental).
They established laws to benefit themselves (Greed).
They neglected to emphasize justice and mercy (Bias).
They were accomplices to silencing the prophets (Oppressive).

Great leaders don’t tell you what to do, they show you how it’s done.
The challenge of LEADERSHIP…..
Is to be Strong, but not Rude,
To be Kind, but not Weak,
To be Bold, but not a Bully,
To be Thoughtful, but not Lazy,
To be Humble, but not Timid,
To be Proud, but not Arrogant,
To have Humor, but without Folly.
Which of these qualities and characteristics do YOU both look for and follow in a leader?
I AM NOT ASHAMED TO SAY – I NEED JESUS IN MY LIFE!
