Being a Good Leader

Want to be a good leader, according to the Bible’s standards?

Daniel Block:

In keeping with a fundamental tenet of biblical leadership, the primary function of leaders is not defined in terms of the tasks they are expected to perform but in terms of the kind of persons they are to be.

If the primary function of the head of the nation was to embody the ethical and spiritual values of the community (Deuteronomy 17:14-20), the same was true for heads of households.

The household’s members should be able to observe the head and know what kinds of persons they were to be.

The Triumph of Grace, p. 232

I imagine this goes for every area of life, right? Family, Church, Business, Nation. And of course, Jesus was the ultimate example of this… being and embodying what he called his followers to. Jesus is the leaders of leaders.
