Frequently I am asked: “Where have all the great and authentic leaders gone?” It is an appropriate question and deserves our best attention. Obviously, it raises the question, who were the great leaders in the past? All of us have our own list, to be sure, both Biblical and secular.
From the Biblical perspective, we would find names like Abraham, Moses, Amos, and Jeremiah. But I am wondering if you would have Esther on your list? From the New Testament, we would have names like Peter, Paul, and John the Baptist, but would Timothy, Titus, Philemon, or even Mary Magdalene be on your list?
Honesty requires me to ask you: do you think you are an authentic leader? In my heart of hearts, I believe that is what God expects each one of us to be.
