THE FALL OF LEADERSHIP

2019 – SATURDAY 09 NOVEMBER

THE FALL OF LEADERSHIP

History reveals the fall from grace of leadership bodies in many institutions – including the church.
There are some clear elements present when leadership bodies start to fail.

COMPLACENCY
Leadership failure – begins when complacency sets in.
King David stayed home at the time when Kings go to war.
His personal agenda came first.
Success is a drug that dulls our sensitivities to reality.

COMPROMISE
There are always cracks of compromise present – when we take our eye off the call to the cause.
King David began to have devotions on the rooftop while watching a young woman take her bath.
King Solomon took longer to build his own Palace for his many wives, than he did to build the Temple of the Lord.

CRONYISM
Jobs for the boys always weakens the leadership team.
Nepotism is rife in a failing organisation.
Making allowances for failing leaders who have become buddies and friends, reveals a huge flaw and leads to failure.

CORRUPTION
An executive or board who are working with a failing leader now start to make corrupt choices to hide issues they know are not right.

CONFLICT
Anyone who challenges such flawed leadership will be deemed to be the enemy, and banned from the organisation.
Continued and increasing control will be evident as things start to fall apart.

CRASH
Finally the crash happens.
Many are surprised – as they had chosen to close their eyes to the real issues.
Righteousness exalts a nation, a city, an organisation, a church body, etc.
Unrighteousness brings ultimate ruin.

WILL HISTORY BE KIND TO YOU?
