What do you think of when you hear the term “Dangerous Leader”? If you’re a visionary leader you probably think of someone who has a big vision and pushes back darkness. One who dares to dream great dreams. One who moves forward toward great things despite fear and opposition.
But for others the term “Dangerous Leader” stirs up thoughts of being beaten down, discouraged and unappreciated. This type of dangerous leader destroys their team members confidence and commitment.
My life verse is Psalm 78:72 which talks about David’s leadership style. It says, “David shepherded them with a pure heart and guided them with skillful hands.” In other words, David had leadership spirit and leadership skill. He may have been a dangerous leader for the Kingdom sake, but he wasn’t a leader who demoralized his team. His spirit and skill as a leader emboldened his people’s confidence and commitment.
