(1Tim 4:12) says “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
The third trait a Godly leader needs is charity. This word charity is another word for love. Thus, if a leader is going to lead effectively he/she needs love for their fellowman, whether they are saved or not. Because there is an old saying that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. We know this is true because Jesus cared for the Church and the world so much that He died for it. For (Rom. 5:8) says “For God commended his love toward us in while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Thus he initiated love toward us even though we didn’t have the same affection for him, and that’s how God’s leaders must be. We must be willing to become initiators of love even upon the people who don’t care very much for us because that’s what God would do .Therefore to serve effectively we must love people or we will serve them halfheartedly or not at all and that’s not the legacy the Lord would have us to leave in the earth.
God Bless You
