Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Following his first book on leadership, Leaders Who Last, Dave Kraft consulted with colleagues, readers, and fellow leaders to generate a list of the top ten fatal mistakes leaders make--fatal in that they can be the end of ministry effectiveness, relationships, and God's blessing. Drawing on his extensive experience in helping leaders avoid these errors, Kraft methodically addresses each mistake by looking at the problem, the principle, and the practice of a solution. He uses the narrative device of a fictitious church leadership team to illustrate his points in an engaging manner and offers us a professional book, for male and female leaders, written at a trade level.
