What is a Godly Leader?

What is a Godly Leader?

What is a Godly leader? What is a leader? The meaning of a leader is one that leads or conducts; a guide; a conductor.

The best example of a leader would be Jesus. He has this way of being able to communicate with anyone regardless of color, culture, or status. If you read through Mark 1:12-13, Jesus is very outspoken of the fact that he is obedient with the Holy Spirit.

Embracing A New Normal

I hate the term “New Normal.” I started writing this post four different times until I realized I was trying to avoid these two words. The first time I heard them was a few days after our daughter died. Someone who meant well-tried to explain away the extreme amount of difference we were facing by merely saying, “You will find a new normal.” I have heard it again in recent days. We all used to have our routines and standard operating procedures. Everything has changed at this point.

Confidence in Fatherhood Stems From The Greatest Father

How can I have confidence in fatherhood when I wasn’t taught how to be one? It’s something I used to ponder on as I transitioned into Fatherhood. I grew up without an active father in my life. I can think of so many things I felt I should have learned from my father but instead learned from peers or even the internet.

For example, I learned to tie a tie, change a tire, and even shave from youtube. Not that anything is wrong with self-learning, but the confirmation and encouragement can’t be accomplished on an internet app.

When Life Brings Nothing But Change

When Life Brings Nothing But Change

It’s been nothing but change since August of 2018. I have been experiencing the life-changing events of being an empty-nester.

10 ways Christians can be at Peace and Thrive during Covid-19

1. Seek and share accurate information

It doesn’t take much to cause panic in the public psyche today, and it takes even less to cause people to embrace fear. If you have watched or read the news, you can see people are panic shopping (The Great Toliet Paper Shortage of 2020), even resulting in violence in some situations. The Covid-19 virus is a medical emergency and should be treated as such, but we should treat this as a spiritual emergency as well. No-one benefits from confusion and fear, so let’s keep our focus on God, who is still in control of all things. 

Christians can stay grounded by seeking accurate information from medical organizations such as Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization and only sharing facts and truthful information, not more misinformation through social media.
