Practicing What I Preach
We have a lot of talking heads in the church, but too few examples. We need leaders willing to get their hands dirty, to do what most people aren't willing to do. That's what I'm trying to do.
I'm not always successful in my efforts or perfectly consistent, but I'm doing something. And only when I'm leading by example can I expect others to do something too.
Kelly Brady is pastor of Glen Ellyn Bible Church in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
