A Kingdom Leader is open to learning from other people God places in their life. The eternal classroom of life helps us discover the traits we need to develop and refine. John the disciple was a stormy, wild, uncontrolled, confrontational, insulting, ambitious, driven, pushy, racist and intolerant man. Jesus positions him to become the disciple of love!
Who has God brought into your life for practical lessons in relationships? Are you open to learning new ways of relating to others or do you prefer to remain a son of thunder? Is change very hard for you to seriously consider? John describes himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved. He loved him so much he was willing to assist him through his mother Mary.
John 19:26 (NIV)
We are thankful for so many who have shaped our minds and hearts. Some of you have been those people in our life. Thank you.
