    Churches generally reflect the personalities of their leaders. Some are friendly. Some are chilly. Some care about the “least of these.” Some are eager to win the lost. Often, men and/or women are selected to lead based on who is liked and known by the majority. And that’s good. Godly people are apt to be well liked and well known. Congregations do well to let their leaders participate in public meetings so that they will be known. And they do well to let every member share their talents in ways which will cause others to see and learn to love them. Leaders who are loved will be followed. We do well to realize that everyone sometimes makes a mistake. So leaders may not be perfect. But they should be headed the right direction. If not, the church will become sick and may die.
