Leadership definitions abound, and they have for centuries of time. Jim Rohn expresses an idea that provides an incredible thought: “If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.”
The basic understanding of a leader is someone who is able to move others from point A to point B.
A biblical development of leadership prescribes the idea of helping those who are outside of Christ (point A) to turn from a self-directed life to obediently follow the Savior (point B).
A key element of this prescriptive help is an education built on biblical truth.
The wrong road is one that only ends in destruction. The need is urgent and relevant to every soul we encounter on a daily basis.
These precious souls need encouragement, but they also need education to turn around and pursue a different course, a course that enables them to to find eternal hope.
