8 Thoughts About What God Thinks Of Leaders

Do you ever wonder what God thinks of you as a leader?  Is He impressed?  Is He proud of you?  Do you think He appreciate your efforts, motives, and hard work?  I think I got a small picture of what He thinks about our Christian leadership efforts today.

You see, I’ve been working on a project at work for several weeks.  The sum part of those efforts culminated today with the arrival to my office of the conference workbooks I oversaw the creation of.  Did you catch that, something I helped create.

Genesis 1:26 tells us we were created by Him in His image.  The feelings I had about my creation gave me a small window into how I think God feels about His creation, you and me.

  1. I Was Proud Of My Creation
  2. I Knew The Amount Of Effort That Went Into My Creation
  3. I Knew My Creation Wasn’t Perfect But I Loved It Anyway
  4. No One Can Tell Me That My Creation Was Bad 
  5. My Creation Was Unique
  6. My Creation Sits On My Shelf Life A Trophy
  7. My Creation Will Have A Positive Impact On Others
  8. I Showed My Creation To Everyone In The Office

There are several HUGE differences between God’s creation of human beings and my feeble attempt of creativity with a conference workbook.  One is that I needed the help of others while God is completely self-sustaining.  The main one though is that as much as I appreciated the workbook, I would never die for itI certainly would not sacrifice something important for it.

Jesus loved the human race so much that He died for it allowing an eternal relationship with Him to take place.  When I looked at that beautiful, wonderful workbook I couldn’t help but think about how Jesus must feel when He looks at me.

How do you think Jesus feels about you?
