In our world, so many want to be leaders, but to become a great leader you must learn to serve those in leadership. Many have found themselves wanting to learn to serve but have found themselves in toxic situations.
With social media on the rise, many are becoming more and more closed off so many times leaders do not realize they are toxic until they find themselves alone.
It is so beneficial to allow the Holy Spirit to shed light on those areas in our hearts where we much grow.
I found this on the web recently and wanted to share it today.
