Definitions of a leader vary from one person to another. However, among the many that exist, one describes a leader as “a short length of wire by which a hook is attached to a fishing line.”
The design of this wire is tough to prevent fish from cutting the line. In numerous places, this material is often made of steel, which adds to the thought.
Regardless of how one might define a leader today, we know they must be strong, able to withstand any challenge. It is not a matter of if, but when these challenges come. Spiritual leaders need to remember that the strength of God will help us in battle.
