On being President (of South Africa) This has placed a great responsibility on my shoulders. We enter into a covenant that we shall build a society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity – a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world. To be the father of a nation is a great honour, but to be the father of a family is a greater joy. Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Long-range Planning


Some food for thought • Your highest thoughts are about your God. • Your deepest conversations are in your prayers. • Your most humble posture – on your knees. • Your most precious gift is LIFE. Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Long-range Planning

It makes my way plain before me. • I boldly and confidently say that my heart is fixed and established on the solid foundation – the Living Word of God! Amen Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Long-range Planning

Learning, application and commitment: James 1: 22-25 • “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. • Do what it says. • Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in the mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. • But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it - he will be blessed in what he does.” (NIV) Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Long-range Planning


Learning, application and commitment • One of the Biblical truths (principles) that I have learned from this lesson was … • I intend to apply this truth (principle) in my business/Ministry by: ….. • With the help of the Holy Spirit, I will begin applying this truth immediately. I ask and expect my group to hold me accountable for this and to check with me periodically to determine if I am doing so. Please ask me …..
