Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Healthy Alliances


"I have walked the long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that, after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many m ore hills to climb. I have taken time here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my walk is not yet ended. Nelson Mandela Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Healthy Alliances
