Don’t choose style over substance

All too often we who are in leadership make the fatal error of placing style before substance. It’s good to want to communicate well, and to present your message and conduct yourself with excellence, but sometimes we put far more emphasis on how we package what we have to offer than on what we’re offering. Often this is a symptom of a lack of depth in our relationship with God.
You don’t need to look like Apostle Knowitall or sound like Bishop Big Shot. When you’ve been in the presence of God, you don’t need to sound or look or act like anyone else, because a genuine experience in a consistent practice of the presence of God and a relentless pursuit of unbroken fellowship with Him will pervade what you say with the authority and majesty of God.
