Failure is something everyone faces at some point in their lives. People fail in sports when they are younger. Young adults can fail at gaining employment quickly after college. Adults fail at many things every day. Failure is never easy.

But one type of failure seems especially excruciating to watch or experience – the failure of a leader. Witnessing the fall of a leader, especially one you have learned from and benefited from is hard. However, there are lessons to be learned in such a time. Rick Duncan shares “7 Practices of Highly Successful and Deeply Hurtful Spiritual Leaders“.

There is something there for all of us to reflect on and evaluate in our own lives. Enjoy and as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
