Cultivating the Inner Life of a Leader

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 “…while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” The unseen foundation that is laid in our lives are not just for our success in this present life, but they endure unto eternity.

People want to know how to grow big and because of the way the questions come, we start thinking that it is what we did that brought us here, rather than the journey we took with God. For this reason, it is important for us to take time to build a solid foundation in our lives. In scripture, we also see a God who takes time to ensure that a well-built foundation is established in His servants’ lives.
