How do you honor your spiritual leaders?
8 Ways to Honor Your Leader
- Pray – a huge one.
- Encourage- lift your leaders up in public, and critique them in private.
- Confront- if you see something out of whack, tell them.
- Serve- be willing to carry the load.
- Trust- incredibly important.
- Understand- know what drives them, what motivates them, and also what frustrates them.
Why should we respect our leaders?
Respecting leadership results in a trusting leadership.
Respect, amongst the other values of openness, courage, commitment and focus, is what builds trust. Without this mutual respect there was no bond of trust between us. Respected leaders will more likely help develop autonomy and enable others to (take the) lead.
Why should we pray for our pastors?
Pastors represent God.
Think about that statement. Pastors represent the Almighty Creator of the Universe in a community. They are the undershepherd of Jesus Christ leading local congregations. Only through God’s grace and intercessory prayer of others can a pastor hope to satisfy his high calling.
The Bible speaks decisively to this issue. Romans 13:1-2 says: “Obey the government, for God is the One who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the law of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow.”
