Leaders: Are they born or made?
I am a student of leadership. I read every book I can about it. The question that is often brought up are leaders born or made? I think it is some of both. At least when it comes to Spiritual Leadership. We can read books and go to conferences and learn how to become a leader. But Spiritual Leadership only comes to a person who is close to God and He chooses to bless. Henry and Richard Blackaby said, "It is one thing to call God your friend. It is quite another for God to call you his friend." How do we get to the point where Jesus calls us his friend. By spending time with Him in prayer and Bible Study. There are dangers to becoming a Spiritual Leader. God will shape you to become what He wants. We have to give up our desires and follow his. My prayer is that I become a friend of God.
