Look for Humility in Leadership

There is no debate that the most respected and admired character trait for any person is that of humility. I would suggest that this is especially true of leaders.

Sacrificial Lambs

At this very special time of year, it is more than appropriate to meditate on the meanings of God’s sacrificial lambs. A number of years ago I worked in a small office that was owned and operated by a wonderful Jewish man.

The following was written for April 5, 2015, “Our Daily Bread” by Jennifer Benson Shuldt. ******************** Charlotte Elliott wrote the hymn “Just As I Am” in 1834. She had been an invalid for many years, and though she wanted to help with a fund-raiser for a girl’s school, she was too ill. She felt useless, and this inner distress caused her to begin doubting her faith in Christ. She wrote “Just As I Am” as a response to her doubt. The crux of her distress is perhaps best expressed in […]
