Are our goals self-serving, or do we strive for what is best eternally for the souls of others?
Do our decisions provide an advantage to our career and future, or better equip someone else?
Are we driven by an agenda, or a simplistic and pure love for the betterment of God’s kingdom?
When we study, do we strive to learn the truth or find a way to justify our position?
I wish it was easier, but it isn’t. Personally, I do not like answering these questions, but it must be done.
As spiritual leaders, we must examine ourselves honestly, admit mistakes, act Christ-like, and pray for God’s strength to do what is right. This is why it’s called the bottom line!
