A Leader's Heart

A Leader’s Heart
Tomorrow, I will speak to the leaders of Remix (the youth ministry at Trinity, Baltimore). I was asked to speak on two topics: "A Leader's Heart" and "Self-Leadership". Here is my outline for "A Leader's Heart."
A Leader has:
A Seeking Heart: Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need (Matthew 6:33 NLT-SE)
A Hungry Heart: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied (Matthew 5:6 NAS95)
A Pure Heart: God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God (Matthew 5:8 NLT-SE)
A Healthy Heart: This represents a holistic lifestyle
A Unified Heart: Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace (Ephesians 4:1–3 NLT-SE)
A Brave Heart: How could I leave this out?
A Cheerful Heart: A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength (Proverbs 17:22 NLT-SE)
A Wise Heart: Proverbs 2
A Servant’s Heart: So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen (2 Timothy 2:10 NLT-SE).
