A barefoot Moses in Sinai

Moses before the Burning Bush

I’ve discovered the answer for how to succeed in life, relationships, leadership, and ministry.

However, before you write me off as either delusional or presumptuous, let me quickly say that I didn’t originate the answer—I just heard it and wrote it down. I was in a pastors’ training seminar with Pastor Jack Hayford (an esteemed author, teacher, and pastor to pastors) when I heard it. Jack was coaching a roomful of pastors on how to succeed in life and ministry, when he made a statement that has forever lodged in my heart. He said, “Leadership that succeeds walks softly, like a barefoot Moses in Sinai.”

I loved that statement!  And it resonated with me on multiple levels. As a student of the Bible, I’ve always loved the imagery of Moses slipping off his sandals and kneeling on holy ground, and it’s always inspired me to pursue my own moments of barefooted worship and surrender. As a church leader, that statement reminded me that the safest place in the world is the place of reverential devotion and the fear of the Lord.

I think Pastor Jack nailed the essence of successful leadership. Leaders who succeed for the long haul never lose their dependence on the power and presence of God. They never walk in self-sufficient arrogance, and they are quick to discern when common ground turns holy.

A barefoot Moses in Sinai—I hope that’s descriptive of you and me. And I hope it always continues to be.

    Hello, I do think your site may be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, great site!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next
    post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    * A sitemap to navigate your website is helpful for visitors to access main pages.
    20 percent of customers have the potential to spend five times as much as they do currently A relatively small amount
    of marketing effort creates the majority of output. And then on March
    20, the world’s largest paid private blog network – BMR – announced that its vast network had been almost entirely de-indexed by Google, causing chaos in the internet marketing industries.
