Good title, and some great points within your article. So many want to assume leadership roles without really embracing all that is needed to do the job well. I especially liked your inclusion of this line:

"people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care"

Nice entry, thanks for sharing it.

A very interesting message. I too like the line you quoted about people not caring how much you know until they know how much you care. Thanks for sharing.
That was one of my favorite lines too. But I think what I liked most about this was the idea that you embraced of follow through. Some times people are idealistic. They think they can help someone heavily burdened, and yes, they do care and do have the passion to help--for that moment. But to really help someone means going down the long road and that is hard. So people need to be sure they can do the whole road or not start at all as the damage done for a partial walk can be severe. Thought you understood the whole process perfectly.
Your message is clear and relevant. True leaders are the ones who cares, not the one who has the most knowledge. Good writing..brief, clear and to the point.

Excellent points. Passion, purpose, and a shepherd's heart. Sounds like the mind and heart of Christ.
