Introduction

Ever met a bad leader? Who hasn’t right? When I asked if you have met a bad leader, it probably took a nanosecond for your long-term memory synapses to populate a face to your imagination screen. Some of us could list a whole bunch of bad leaders. Every organization is susceptible to people who somehow ascend the ranks and achieve key leader status. Sadly, many of those people are not qualified to be there. It is a head-scratcher to figure out how they got there.
Isaiah 56:10–12 ESV
10 His watchmen are blind; they are all without knowledge; they are all silent dogs; they cannot bark, dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough. But they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each to his own gain, one and all. 12 “Come,” they say, “let me get wine; let us fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow will be like this day, great beyond measure.”
Isaiah 56:10-12
1 Peter 5:1–5 NIV
1 To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: 2 Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. 5 In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
1 Peter 5:
