Moses cried out to the LORD, “What shall I do with these people?” They are almost ready to stone me.” Exodus 17:4
Being a leader isn’t always easy. Stewards are called to be leaders in faith, which involves sacrifice, courage, humility and a commitment to the words of Jesus, “What you do to the least of my brethren you do to me.”
