Attractive Leadership

[William Carey] is most remarkable for his humility; he is a very superior man, and appears to know nothing about it.

The great man and the little child unite in him, and, as far as I can see, he has attained to the happy art of ruling and overruling in connection with the others mentioned, without his asserting his authority, or others feeling their subjection; and all is done without the least appearance of design on his part.

One Response to Attractive Leadership

    Very interesting. That is the best kind of leadership, closest to the ideal “style” of our Savior. I cringe when I hear of and see Christian pastors/leaders speaking and acting with dictatorial attitudes. It is contradictory and just plain sad.
