Hopefully with time, we are all maturing in our relationship with Christ and as leaders. In the past (and unfortunately still too often), I’ve exhibited traits of immaturity. This week I’ll share four common areas of leadership immaturity.
Know It Alls
In my earlier years of ministry, I thought, for the most part, I had “it all figured out.” While in seminary, I was the classic armchair quarterback.
If I was the senior pastor…
Because I thought I knew so much:
- I didn’t ask questions.
- I criticized ministries I could have learned from.
- I made tons of ministry mistakes and hurt a lot of people.
- I placed a ceiling on my effectiveness.
Too many people are too proud of what they know. The older I get, the less I realize I know, and the more I’m growing.
How about you? What do you know too much about?
