Gaining Moral Authority
By: Rick Boxx
March 21, 2012

Mrs. Holmes, my fourth grade teacher, won my respect that year. She understood me and cared about me, so I excelled.

For the last semester a student teacher led the class. She didn’t know me, nor did she seem to care, so we clashed at times. My grades and behavior suffered. Although she had positional power over me, she had no moral authority.

Jesus describes a good shepherd in John 10, “He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger.”

If you have a new team to lead, invest time in knowing them and caring for them.
