The Gospel Commandments of Leadership

“The Gospel Commandments of Leadership” is a great list of qualities that we all must have. I read it recently, but the author is unknown. Whoever wrote it was right on. I hope this list will be a big encouragement to you as it was to me.

1. People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered. Love and trust them anyway. (Luke 23:34)

2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway. (Matthew 11:16, 19)

3. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. (Luke 19:36-38; John 19:15)

4. The service you render today will be forgotten tomorrow. Serve people anyway. (Luke 17:17)

5. Honestly and frankness will make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. (Luke 12:51; Luke 13:5)

6. The biggest men with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men with the smallest ideas. Think big anyway. (Luke 22:22, 24)

7. People pretend to love the “little” people but sell their souls to the “big” people. Fight for the “little” people anyway. (Matthew 19:14)

8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. (Matthew 26:48, 49, 56)

9. People really need help but may attack you if you do help. Help people anyway. (Luke 4:18, 19, 28, 29)

10. Give the world the best you have, and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway. (Matthew 27:17, 21)
