Three years ago I shared an article titled 20 Encouraging Bible Verses For Young Leaders. Today, I want to add to the list of encouraging Bible verses for young leaders.
The Bible is one of the greatest business books any leader could read. Deep insights into human psychology, history, and encouragement can be found throughout the Bible.
Let’s look at 25 encouraging Bible verses every leader should have memorized.

There’s many days I feel like quitting. I don’t want to sit down at the computer and write a blog post. Or maybe I’m halfway through a run when my feet and legs begin to hurt.
The pain I’m feeling is almost too much to go on. These are the times I feel like quitting.
But I don’t.
Lok the Vizsla telling me to keep going
Have you ever been there? Do you ever feel like you want to quit and give up on pursuing your passions?
Don’t be afraid to say you do. I know the truth because I’m there frequently. And I’m sure you are as well.

The art of asking questions seems to be dead. Finding someone who asks great questions, ever more scarce than finding someone who asks questions.
There’s something sad about that. I’ve found something fascinating.
Those who are serious about learning are always asking questions. And they’re asking specific types of questions.
Be A Question Asker
The funny thing is, I can be one of those people who struggle to ask questions. I’m fearful.
I’m scared that people will think I’m dumb. Or that I don’t understand what’s going on.
My wife is different. She loves to ask questions. She’s fearless that way.
She’ll ask questions about characters in movies. She’ll ask questions about Bible passages. She’ll ask questions about anything that comes to her mind.
Be like my wife. Be a question asker. Read more...
I’ve always had a love for comic books. Reading the stories of the X-Men, Wolverine, Captain America, and Daredevil brought me to a whole new world.
The world of comics brought stories alive like I’d never seen before. Pages splashed with colors and beautiful images. Those images showing movement and energy.
Words and pictures melded together to engage me. Turning every page, I wanted more. I wanted to see what happened next.
But then I stopped reading comics. For years I didn’t pick up a comic book. Then, a couple of months back, I began visiting local comic book stores.
The local comic book store opened my eyes to epic events that happened during my separation from comics. Captain America had died. So did the Incredible Hulk. Wait, Captain America is back? And he’s a bad guy?
So much to keep up with. So much to take in. Read more...
