I'm a pastor and therefore a leader in a church. Someone did a survey of church board members, asking them simply if their experience on the board was a positive or negative experience spiritually. 85% said it was negative. Yikes.
As leaders we need to be the first ones to receive God’s grace and pass it on. Otherwise, we're like any other organization, though we claim to be spiritual. Receiving God's grace takes time and energy and a dynamic relationship with Him.
As we move up in leadership and responsibility we tend to think we can less afford to dispense grace, that the things we’re doing are too important. Actually, it’s the reverse. If the things we’re doing are so important, we need them to be characterized by grace.
