Leadership by the Book

GREAT LEADERS LEAD BY EXAMPLE

“So I exhort the elders among you ... shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” (1 Peter 5:1–3, ESV)

“Therefore, as a fellow elder ... I exhort the elders among you: Shepherd God’s flock among you, not overseeing out of compulsion but freely, according to God’s will; not for the money but eagerly; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.” (1 Peter 5:1–3, HCSB)

“To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder ... Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.” (1 Peter 5:1–3, NIV84)
