A good leader has two important characteristics: First, he is going somewhere. Second, he is able to persuade others to go with him!
A true leader knows what he believes and acts upon it, no matter what others say! What he must do, and not what people think, is all that concerns him. He stands his ground when all else fails and all others desert! You cannot dissuade him! You cannot divert him! He'll go on, with you or without you, or right over you, if necessary! He's faithful to God's Message; he's faithful to God's method; he's faithful to the Word; he's faithful to the Voice of God; he's faithful to the particular ministry God has called him to; he's loyal!
A real leader will keep on course and try to keep others on course in the direction he's going and pull them his way. A leader who tends to be pulled other ways by followers, who can't buck the tide, is not much of a leader!
A genuine leader must be an influence on others for good, to lead and guide them and teach them and try to pull them the right direction, away from their weaknesses!--Are you such a leader?
