a Biblical thought...
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22)

a Book thought...
What is the Salvation Army, if its one aim, and it one glory, is not the salvation of the souls of men? (p156)
a Dave thought... by John Maxwell
Enlarging others makes you larger. The purpose of power is to be distributed, not hoarded, but only secure leaders are able to give their power away. Recognize and resist the natural inclinations to keep a tight grip on power. In the long run, you'll be rewarded for letting go.
Here is a quotation on empowerment from decorated war hero and former vice presidential candidate, James B. Stockdale:

"Leadership must be based on goodwill... It means obvious and wholehearted commitment to helping followers... What we need for leaders are men of heart who are so helpful that they, in effect, do away with the need of their jobs. But leaders like that are never out of a job, never out of followers. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away."

Just a thought.
