Why leadership really isn't all that sexy…

Tom Lin says:

“Our culture today places a premium on avoiding suffering. Celebrities and our culture says ‘we want to do some good, but it’s not going to cause me a lot of suffering and it’s certainly won’t cost me my life.

We don’t want to engage with suffering ourselves and we certainly don’t teach our youth to engage in suffering…But when we look at scripture, God invites leaders to suffer. When Jesus calls leaders in the Gospels do you notice He always seems to ask leaders to die to the things they care most about.”
