The Gospel Commandments of Leadership

  1. People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered. Love and trust them anyway. (Luke 23:34)
  1. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway. (Matthew 11:16, 19)
  1. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. (Luke 19:36-38; John 19:15)
  1. The service you render today will be forgotten tomorrow. Serve people anyway. (Luke 17:17)

  1. Honestly and frankness will make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. (Luke 12:51; Luke 13:5)
  1. 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)
  1. People pretend to love the “little” people but sell their souls to the “big” people. Fight for the “little” people anyway. (Matthew 19:14)
  1. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. (Matthew 26:48, 49, 56)
  1. People really need help but may attack you if you do help. Help people anyway. (Luke 4:18, 19, 28, 29)
  1. 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)

  1. I really need and enjoy your writing. It has seriously given me help. I am a pastor of a very small church with a big vision. Reading these emails over the past 6 months has been a tremendous inspiration. I strongly encourage you to put them in book form if you haven’t already.
