Leadership is indeed filled with risk
It is a great and high calling but without pitfalls
People have great opportunity to be leadership and do great for the kingdom of God but dololo.
Alas most leaders of today have inbarked on a detour, hurting not only their own lives but also lives of their followers the likes of Maponga,The TB Joshua, major1 and the rest they known themselves.
Leadership is people who ought to positively influence other resulting in change in behavior and attitudes.
Like secular history the Scriptures are filled with models of good and bad leadership, from great men like Abraham, Moses, King David, Peter and Apostle Paul to the wicked kings of Israel and traitors like herod and Judas. We find of all kinds.
If the Bible was a mere book of fairy tales, It would have excluded the failures of leadership but we find brutal reality.
In Acts7:35 We find a leader who can fill the shoes
This is the same Moses whom they had rejected with words, who made you ruler and Judge.
