Often Overlooked – Family First
It all begins in the home with the family. One of most neglected avenues of life is the family. Many leaders sacrifice their family for anything & everything because they feel like it is just acceptable and that family is loyal. Perhaps one side of the family is, but it very much so takes both sides buying into loyalty.
The author’s premise is that if a leader wants to be a true leader, then he must start at home with his own family. This is where credibility and respect comes from. Without the family support, a leader cannot be a leader, because everyone will question his leadership skills if his family is out or order.
Paul emphasized the very same thing in his pastoral letters to Timothy so that Timothy would know what a true leader in the church looks like.
This book has a strong theological foundation that leads to specific application for the Christian leader. As stated above, the ministry of the family is often the most neglected avenue of influence for the Christian leader and that is not leadership at all.
Thank you to Crossway publishers for the opportunity to review this book. I was not required to write a positive review.
