THE OVERSIGHT OF NURTURING THE FLOCK By Bro Gbile Akanni
In every setting and organization, the leaders are either hunters of farmers. When the leaders are hunter, they live with mindset of using thier followers to achieve their personal desires without considering the lives of the people concerned. Whatever potential or virtue a follower have in the sight of a leader with “hunter” mentality must be tapped into and used for their own upliftment and desires. Just the way hunter always kill animal at sight to satisfy thier present need these leaders use other people. However, the leaders with farmers ideology nurture thier followers into great people so the extent that they become generational blessings. These kind of leaders are common in every organization either in the christian setting or the secular settings. Some spiritual leaders only look for followers who will use their potentials and ability to serve them without being the cultivator of such potentials in the life of such follower. As a leader your goal must be how to build and nurture your followers not just to show your self as a good leader but also to live long and have peace of mind whenever you are too old to act or absent from service. This is a powerful sermon that will inspire and teach you how to be a productive spiritual leader.
