Here are some leadership and productivity blog posts I have come across recently.
Leader, Deal with Your Defective Sense of Self by Lane Cohee
“The identity message for the disquieted leader—whether driven by shame or pride—is the same. We need to begin the daily, even hourly, practice of training ourselves to stop listening to our own voice—and start listening to God’s.”
7 Key Concepts for Biblical Preaching by David Qaoud
Seven key concepts from some of the greatest preachers and teachers of our time.
Godly Leaders Welcome Correction by Phillip Holmes
“Just because criticism can hurt doesn’t mean it’s not good for us. Scripture paints a positive picture of anyone who welcomes correction as wise (Proverbs 9:8, 15:31) and those who reject it as foolish. Furthermore, we’re instructed to use all Scripture “for reproof” and “for correction” for our good and God’s glory. Whether God has entrusted you with two thousand employees or two children, your posture towards correction is too important to overlook. Consider a biblical view of correction as you evaluate your posture towards correction and its implications for your success, family, and spiritual health.”
12 Things Pastors Should Not Do by Mark Altrogge
“There are many things that pastors are called to do: Preach the Gospel and the Word of God, shepherd and care for Christ’s flock, pray, and seek to set an example for the saints, among many others. But there are things that pastors should not do, and temptations that we can fall into. I’ve been a pastor since 1981, and I have failed numerous times, and have many weaknesses. I am so grateful the Lord has been patient and forbearing with me. Here are a few things the Lord taught me over the years that pastors should not do.”
Why and How We Started a Sunday Evening Service by Matthew Fletcher
“On the first Sunday of 2019, our church started a Sunday evening service. Actually, it’s more accurate to say that we “resurrected” it. Like many churches, our Sunday night service died a slow death years earlier. The funeral was over by the time I became pastor. For the next several years, most of us were content to keep it buried. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t enjoy having the second half of my Sundays off. I relished the opportunity to relax with my family before charging into another week of ministry. But over time I became increasingly concerned about our lack of corporate prayer as a church. Plus a growing number of us wanted additional time for fellowship in a less formal, more interactive format for the sake of mutual encouragement—something we could all do together as a church family, not just in small groups.”
