Lesson 1

Title: The Heart of A Godly Servant

Growing in the characteristics of godly leadership is a lifelong process. "Scriptural Principles Pertaining to the Heart of a Leader" offers additional study into other scriptures than what are covered in this lesson. We encourage you to make a project of carefully reading the sections of Scriptures in the materials provided below and answering the questions. As you do, you will see how the Bible offers great insight into the thinking of humans versus the thinking of God.

Lesson 2

Title: Pride vs. Humility: The Attitude of a Leader

In Proverbs 6:16-19 God lists six attributes that He hates. Notice that pride is one of the six mentioned. Does this sin stand alone, or can the sin of pride contribute to the other five sins listed there? Why does God hate this sin so much?

Lesson 3

Title: Christian Priorities in Life

There is so much contained in the words of Jesus when He instructed His disciples on how to pray. Praying for the Kingdom of God to come encompasses a massive request, considering all that will happen to and soon after Jesus Christ appears. It's no different when it comes to Christians prioritizing their lives. Like prayer, correctly prioritizing should be a daily routine of preparation and implementation—a way of life.

Lesson 4

Title: Pitfalls of Service

When we study the subject of service, we will see a great number of scriptures that deal with service to the Church. Take note of the right ways of serving. Note the blessings that are achieved when service is done in a right way. Also take note of pitfalls and things to avoid, even in the area of service.

Lesson 6

Title: Godly Marriage and Family

The topic of marriage and family is a very important and broad subject. In this lesson several books are recommended because much of the content  (though not necessarily all) is quite helpful in underscoring the biblical principles in this lesson. Of course, Mr. Armstrong's book "The Missing Dimension in Sex" contains some essential spiritual insights on the subject of love and marriage and the God-plane relationship that it represents.

Lesson 7

Title: Mastering the Tools of Christian Growth

God has blessed us by providing each individual with spiritual tools that enable us to draw close to Him. And through His merciful help we are able to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In this Lesson 7, we cover the four primary tools which are Prayer, Bible Study, Fasting and Meditation. As we utilize these tools, God builds into us the heart and mind of the true Master Builder Jesus Christ.
