Skills of Outstanding Leaders
A Powerful Brand of Boldness
by Mac Hammond
Wise King Solomon once said: "The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are as bold as a lion." Edmond Burke made a similar observation when he wrote, "The timid soul never attains greatness. He is doomed to a life of cautious wading in the shallows of accomplishment."
There is a powerful brand of boldness that only comes from knowing God. The God-kind of boldness is wise, prudent, and discerning. Those who possess it will climb to heights of achievement that the timid and fearful see only in their dreams.
God's winning word for leaders today is "boldness." My question for you is, "Are you leading timidly or boldly?"
