10. A Good Judge of Character

Jesus knew the hearts of men (John 2:24-25) and he urged us to be perceptive in assessing others (Matthew 7:15).

Leaders must know who is fit for what kind of work.

Good leaders have good noses.

  • They can snoop out barnacles in a hurry, that is, people who are forever listening but never learning or changing.
  • They can detect potential when they see it in a beginner.
  • They can hear in a short time the echoes of pride and hypocrisy and worldliness.

The spiritual leader steers a careful course between the dangers of rigid pigeonholing on the one hand and indifference on the other hand.
