10 Qualities Of A Warrior – Part 7

As a model Leader and Warrior, Jesus provides the perfect example of exemplifying not only the WHO, but also the WHY and the HOW.  Quality number seven is…

7. WARRIORS SHOW SECURITY AND STRENGTH

Leaders show Security and Strength when Handling Tough Issues. (Luke 20:20-26, Matthew 22:23-46) “And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time… Then, He came to the disciples, and said to them, ‘Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand! (Matthew 26:44-46)

Jesus handled tough issues, by:

a.  Rising early and gaining perspective

b.  Remaining calm in difficult times

c.  Agreeing with His adversary quickly

d.  Handling wrongdoing immediately

One thing that my friend, Pastor Greg Surratt says is; “I’m slow to label something good, or bad”…this perspective can leave room for clarity and can also help us to remain calm when the situation requires making a tough call.
