Leadership Thoughts from I Corinthians 1-8

I’m in the process of going back through the Bible viewing it through the eyes of a leader. Here are more thoughts from I Corinthians:

  • Part of my role as a leader is to model this: “agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.” (1:10)
  • God will use ordinary men and women to accomplish his work. (1:28-29)
  • When Paul said he did not come with “superior wisdom,” I wonder if that was more about his approach to sharing truth rather than his lack of wisdom. (2:1-5)
  • Paul demonstrates a key leadership lesson–there are instances when it’s wise to acknowledge our limitations. (1:18-2:5)
  • God makes things grow. We should expect growth. (3:6-7)
  • The true test of a leader’s impact is revealed under fire. (3:10-15)
  • “Those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” (4:2)
  • I need to live a life worthy of imitation. (4:16)
  • The health of my marriage directly impacts my strength as a leader. (7:33-35)
  • Is my intention to impart knowledge or demonstrate love? (8:1-3)
