Tough Issues

Myron Rush identifies tough issues facing every Christian leader in The New Leader. We are wise to ponder them slowly.

  • You must be willing to stand alone.
  • You must be willing to go against public opinion in order to promote what you believe.
  • You must be willing to risk failure.
  • You must become master of your emotions.
  • You must strive to remain above reproach.
  • You must be willing to make decisions others don’t want to make.
  • You must be willing to say no at times, even when you’d like to say yes.
  • You must sometimes be willing to sacrifice personal interests for the good of the group.
  • You must never be content with the average; you must always strive for the best.
  • People must be more important to you than possessions.
  • You will have to work harder to keep your life in balance than people do who are not leaders.
