Leadership and Love, then Trustby Tom James on 07/27/18
So many Leaders accept a leadership role when they LOVE and then TRUST:
-A Person can accept the basic leadership role of society: that of spouse and then of parent.
-And then Trust their Communities' choice for them to lead their town, church, volunteer group, as mayor, as policeman, as garbage collector, business executive, soldier, elected president, senator, etc., etc., etc.
-Leadership comes about as a response to Persons accepting their service and acts of love. Then, in order to earn Trust, they must carry out their responsibilities with: justice, love, humility, compassion, competence, faithfulness, openness, trust, honor, kindness, forgiveness, strength in truth, prayerfulness
We, in the role of followers of such Leaders, must give our Leaders (or our spouse co-Leaders): Trust, support, good advice, the gift of Work, discipline, honor, skillfulness, ideas, creativity, acceptance of expanded roles and responsibilities, prayers for ourselves and our leaders, thankfulness, etc., etc., etc.
Leaders and followers Work together to create Communities where Trust is shared based on Love of one another, shared goals, total commitment to our respective roles and responsibilities, and hope for God's blessing on us while we create Heaven on Earth.
