More on Leadership

Another quote from Leading With a Limp:

The more a person is driven by emptiness and inadequacy, the more self-centered and violent that person will become - and the more oppression he will bring into the world.

Have any of you been a victim of a "leader" like that?

I sure have.

I have someone in my family like this and it makes it so difficult to live like myself around them.

Thank you for sharing this with us all.

In Him,

You are always in my thoughts and prayers.
I pray that God is releaving you of the pain you have been in lately.
You are such a blessing to so many and when you suffer we all do as well.
Again have a blessed weekend. I hope and pray that God will bring up spiritual leaders that will have his heart.
In Him,
Kinney Mabry

Shane - excellent quote, thanks for sharing it.
My answer is yes, I have been a victim of a "leader" like that - only I hesitate to call the person a leader...but they were in a position of leadership.

It's amazing how hard it is to get above the heaviness of such a person. As a result, the whole group suffers with a degree of hopelessness, and a hint of despair.

We need leaders, and we need to be leaders who find our strength and identity in God alone...wouldn't that be amazing?!
