An old book on leadership that touched me many, many years ago was “Spiritual Leadership” by J Oswald Sanders. This was before you could find a leadership book in a Christian book store. No John Maxwell books existed then and in fact, he may not have been born yet. Sander’s insights are keen and anointed. Here is a summary of chapter 5 on some criteria to see if you have the ingredients of leadership. It’s not exhaustive , nor conclusive, but it makes you become introspective, I know it did me. The more I read the more I knew I need God for what He has called me to.
It was a really scary checklist. And the more I read the more I prayed.
