Leadership -- Be an Example

Giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited, but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God”(2 Corinthians 6: 3-4a).

Spiritual leaders should seek to live lives of example – not doing anything that would discredit the ministry of Christ.

Matthew Henry says “Cautious lest we give offense in words or actions.”

This includes the clothes we wear, the things we buy, the movies we watch, the way we speak, and especially the places we go.  If questionable, don’t do it, don’t go there, don’t buy it, don’t watch it, don’t eat it, and don’t drink it.

As saints of old use to say, “Others may, you cannot.”
