1. 20 Encouraging Bible Verses For Young Leaders

You Are Blessed To Be A Blessing

What Are You Giving Back?

Genesis 12:2 shares an insight into what God was doing in Abram’s life. He told Abram “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will your name great, and you will be a blessing.”

I’m sure Abram was still a blessing to others before he received the blessing from God yet change was brought about when Abram was blessed. He was then able to be a blessing.

You Are Blessed

If you live in the United States of America, you are blessed. Even if you’re in the poor house, you have blessings people in other countries would kill for.

The Fastest Way To Lose Your Audience

You’ve spent a lot of time and energy on building up an audience. Whether that’s in the office, through a blog, within a church, or another type of organization your work hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Over the years, you’ve gained traction. You’ve seen new readers come to your blog. You’ve seen your business grow. Or maybe you’ve gained more influence within the office environment.

Yeah, you heard me. Losing your audience sucks. Especially after all of the time and energy you put into your work.
