STOP AND THINK – It’s not the “learned” that make great leaders, but the “learners.” (Quoted by Neil Cole, church planter and author)
We often look to the scholars, the academically-trained teachers to provide strong leadership. And some highly educated learners do give strong and valued leadership. However, as suggested above, the greatest leaders are often those men and women who are still learning, who don’t think they already know it all. They lead best by learning with their followers.
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. (Proverbs 9:9)
