MATERNAL LEADERSHIP: 1 Thessalonians 2:7,8

“We were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” (1 Thessalonians 2:7,8)
Have you ever thought of church leadership being described in maternal terms? Here St. Paul characterizes his church planting team as behaving “like a mother caring for her little children.” Yet I have never seen this kind of church leadership promoted or publicized. Why not? What does St. Paul’s model of leadership have to teach us today?
There are as many models for leadership as there are styles of leadership. There is no ‘best’ style of leadership but there is the most effective style for a particular situation. What works in one situation may not work in another. What works in the military will not work in the home. What works in a school may not work in a hospital. What works in politics may not work in a football or basketball team. What works in a business may not work in a homeless shelter. What works for you in your sphere of influence? What sort of leader are you? All of us give leadership in different ways whether we are aware of it or not.
