1 Timothy 3:4-5
Mark Hatfield, a senator from Oregon and exemplary Christian leader in politics, was interviewed in Harold Myras book Leaders. Commenting on family life, Hatfield said,
The home is the toughest environment of all for leaders. Why is it that the ones we love most are the ones we are most impatient with? My wife has often said to me, “I wish you were as patient with your children as you are with your constituents.” Shes right. She reminds me that Im accountable to God and to my family, and Im grateful for that.
