Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you. - Hebrews 13:17 (NKJV)</p> <p>Leaders Need the Support of OthersCompare the qualifications of elders with Moses (1Timothy 3:1-7)Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. - Acts 20:28 (NKJV)Are we seeking to qualify ourselves?
