Lead Yourself: It’s About Time.
Ministry leaders rarely look for more to do. “Busy” could be a middle name for some us. Focusing on some downtime is an ingredient that we can miss. It keeps vision fresh and ministry vibrant. I believe the lack leading oneself contributes to all kinds of ugly stuff in the role of leadership.
Want to be effective at home and in ministry? Then you’ve got to lead yourself. Lead yourself by guarding against compromising your first love. The relationship between God- your Father, and you- His kid. I like to call it the seek ye first rule (Matthew 6:33). The disciplines of prayer, worship and Bible study are paramount. Lose the art of leading yourself and life will get blurry.
