How Leaders Lead 
- The Maxwell Leadership Bible
Isaiah 3:14,15 Reading

"The more power leaders gain, the more they reveal of themselves. Power causes the heart to disclose its contents.

Leaders must consider the impact of their every move. Leaders always lead. There are no time-outs! There never comes a time when it doesn't matter what you do. Think of your leadership like a diet. Suppose you eat right in the restaurant with friends, but then go home and consume a whole strawberry cheesecake. You don't lose weight that way! What you eat eventually shows. In the same way, those you lead eventually reflect your leadership. Your navigation as a leader depends on the following:

1. When you know where you are going, you gain conviction.
2. When you have been there before, you gain credibility.
3. When you can take someone with you, you gain connection.

A note from Steve Martin, Love For His People Founder/President:

Here is something you would like to read that I wrote in 2014, for you and your staff.  I share from my experiences from my 24 years of leadership with three international ministry leaders. As the Office Manager, Director of Operations and Finances, and USA Director, respectively, with Derek Prince Ministries, All Nations Church - Mahesh & Bonnie Chavda, and Barry & Batya Segal - Vision For Israel and The Joseph Storehouse.

Leadership Through Love: Both Are Needed In Order To Properly Administrate & Appreciate Those Who Serve Together in His Kingdom


Where would churches, ministries or businesses be without the administrators, the directors of departments, or the executive secretaries and administrative assistants? Those organizations who have them know their value. Those who don’t may or may not realize what they are missing. It has been my desire to share a bit of what I have experienced, and learned, over 40 years. Each one of you who now serves in this capacity is very important to the “visionaries”. 

The work that you do, and the support that you consistently give, enables the top leaders of the organization to do what they have been given by the Lord to do. I like to think of our role as similar to that of my Biblical heroes. Joshua assisted Moses and Timothy served with Paul. May the Lord encourage you as you read my thoughts and what has worked for me. I hope the stories and suggestions will impart to you further measures of blessing, for those you support and also to those you give direction to.
