One Sign You’re Doing Good Work as a Leader

By November 12, 2019July 18th, 2023Church, Church Revitalization, Leadership

Do you want to know one sign you’re actually doing well as a leader?

It’s not fool proof, but it’s pretty telling – in my experience.

You’ll know you’re doing good work when…

People oppose you.

And I think we have Biblical principles to illustrate this.

“But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, because a great door of effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.” 1 Corinthians 16:8-9

Here is the reality – few people worry about the people doing nothing.

Have you noticed the more you do for good the more opposition you receive?

    Great point. I’d be concerned if I went unopposed. That said, you made another comment that I want to expand on, at least in one regard:

    “It’s not fool proof.”

    Another mistake is for dismissing every opposition. Sometimes leaders do the wrong thing and need to be opposed legitimately. A wise leader will be able to discern the faithful subordinate who brings legitimate opposition to bear.
