The Cost to Leadership

There are costs to leadership. One is criticism. You can’t have a thin skin and hope to move people through thick plans. No leader is exempt from criticism, and their humility will no where be seen more clearly than in the manner in which they accept and react to it. Opposition is inevitable.

From Nehemiah 4:

  1. Realize it is impossible to lead without facing opposition.
  2. It’s essential that the first response be prayer.
  3. If opposition intensifies you may have to take additional action.  But don’t let it stop God’s plans!
