A Kingdom Leader has deep affection for fellow leaders and staff. It is a friendship that comes alongside the life, heart and thinking of a Christian Brother.
Have you visited the home of your partner in ministry? Have they been invited to your home? Do you know the family members by name? Are you aware of the God issues they face? Are you approachable when it comes to life issues? Do they know you care about their home, life and pressures?
Peter challenges us to add brotherly kindness to our faith. He also says to add it with increasing measure!
2 Peter 1:7 (ESV)
7 and godliness lwith brotherly affection, and brotherly affection mwith love.
Do your staff feel loved by you? Do you look them in the eye and listen to their life issues? Do you have focused attention time with them? Do you greet them with hand shakes and hugs when appropriate? Do you discipline them with love? Those are the four steps to help someone feel like you love them.
Spend some focused time with your brothers today. Don't let the opportunity pass by.
