Family is probably one of the most critical areas of influence in which any of us will exercise our leadership responsibilities - whether it is as the husband God has designated as the head of the home or the wife God has called to manage the home and raise the children.

The family unit is an important place of leadership in the body of Christ.

In the context of a family, the Lord gives us a hint about promotion in His kingdom and in His army. He says that if a man does not rule his house well, he has no business seeking to become a bishop in the church or looking for a position somewhere else (1 Tim. 3:1-5)

In other words, you must start out being faithful at home in order to lead effectively at the level of responsibility God has given you-and then He will promote you.

In every relationship you have, there is an opportunity for you to be a leader. Every back-fence conversation in which you give direction to someone's life is an example of leadership and of your participation in it.

As you are faithful to respond in these little opportunities, God will present you with more and more opportunities for leadership.
