"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" - 2 Timothy 3:15-16.
The Bible is not a book about leadership but it contains many principles, stories, and commands that would make any leader more effective. The Bible, however, is not to be approached casually or without some understanding of how to interpret and apply its directives. Leaders would do well to study the Bible, not only in personal devotions, but also in some form of deeper, directed study that would aid in their comprehension and ability to incorporate what they learn into their everyday leadership style and decisions. The Bible is best applied in character formation, for this book written thousands of years ago can still interpret the motives and intent of a leader's heart and decisions with amazing accuracy.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to recommit to a lifelong study of God's word, both from a devotional and academic perspective. First of all, make sure you choose a good translation and assign it as your study Bible. Second, read through the Bible in one year. Third, look for classes in your church or online that will enhance your understanding of Bible times, language, types of literature therein, and authors. Finally, apply what you learn to your work.
