Leadership Is Not A Popularity Contest

Written about in the post The Trial of Jesus, we get a lesson in leadership. Jesus demonstrates leadership with poise, courage, and strength. On the other hand, Pilot and Herod demonstrated poor leadership skills. They couldn’t make a decision because they lacked the courage to stand up and do what was right.

With God, we can be assured of a promising future and this gives us confidence to face our challenges with confidence. We know that He is faithful. He is like a mountain; standing rock solid over time and protecting us in our time of need. We can take courage, for God is there for us. Today’s inspirational video highlights these thoughts: Whom Shall I Fear – Chris Tomlin.


The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1

    Amen!!! Fear not is what He tells us. It’s not easy but necessary to walk in the levels of faith that He calls us to. Love this and love the song!

  2. I agree, its not a popularity contest or to “lord it” over others, rather the example Jesus set was to wash one other’s feet if you wanted to be “great” in His eyes. A timely reminder for me as we prepare to choose our leaders (we will be having elections soon like you in the US). Yes, I also love this song, it reminds me He is fighting the battles for me.

  3. “With God, we can be assured of a promising future and this gives us confidence to face our challenges with confidence. We know that He is faithful. He is like a mountain; standing rock solid over time and protecting us in our time of need.” Lovely and Powerful. God bless you for sharing. And I just love this song. It inspires
