Spiritual Leadership 101

There are some very basic components to being an effective spiritual leader. Here is a list of things that come to mind:

Lead Yourself Well

1. You have to spend daily time with God through prayer, worship and Bible reading.

2. You have to discipline yourself to do the little things right consistently.

3. You have to learn to hear the voice of God.

4. You have to work hard.

5. You have to learn to work smarter and not just harder.

6. You have to live a life of integrity. Spiritual leaders live their lives above reproach.

7. You have to take care of your marriage and your kids. Having the right priorities is key.

8. You have to have your finances in order. Live on a budget, tithe, give, spend less than you earn and get out of consumer debt and stay out of it.

9. You have to take care of your body. Proper rest, diet and exercise are key to taking care of your body.

10. You have to live a life of faith. Spiritual leaders walk by faith and not by sight.
