True leadership involves doing and modelling what you expect others to do. Too many leaders – and sadly this includes church pastors – do not get involved with what they want people to do. They don’t witness, don’t pray, only study the Word to prepare a sermon and so on and so forth. Some don’t even turn up for their own church services until it’s time for the preaching.
Get out of it! Get your hands dirty, get involved, visit someone, pray for someone, share the gospel with someone. You will get more respect from your people and have more fun too!
