Attitude Reflects Leadership

Teaching was a highly valued and respected profession in Jewish culture, and many Jews who embraced Christianity wanted to become teachers.


James warned that although it is good to aspire to teach, the teachers’ responsibility is great because their words and example affect others’ spiritual lives.

If you are in a teaching or leadership role, how are you affecting those you lead?

Even if you don’t have a formal title of “teacher”, aren’t you still influencing someone? Is it a positive influence?

James 3:1 Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.
