Galatians 6:9 “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Leadership takes work.

  • Part of being in leadership is putting in long hours and doing above what is expected of others.
  • Everyone is busy….therefore comparing myself with someone else is pretty pointless. Comparing yourself with others will only end up with you being frustrated.
    II Corinthians 10:12 “…but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
  • Being a sheep is easy; being a shepherd is work.

Great leaders put in the extra work.

  • If you want to be an extraordinary leader, it takes an extraordinary work ethic.
  • Sometimes leaders have to do things they don’t necessarily like. (for example: Vacuuming, Driving a bus, Staying a little later at school than usual, etc.)

While working, remember why it is you are doing what you are doing.

  • If it is for a paycheck, then you are probably going to be disappointed.
  • If it is for eternity, then you will be happy to do the work.
  • Don’t lose sight of the reason you do what you do!

You will see the fruits of your work if you don’t quit.
