A boss instills fear; a leader instills confidence. A boss creates resentment; a leader creates enthusiasm. A boss say, “I”; a leader says, “We.” A boss fixes blame; a leader fixes mistakes. A boss knows how; a leader shows how. Bosses make work drudgery; leaders make work interesting. A boss relies on authority; a leader relies on cooperation. A boss drives; a leader leads.
The church needs fewer bosses and more leaders.

“…If your gift is…to lead, do it diligently…”—Romans 12:6-8
