Correct in that your first post was a pastoral statement and not intended as a catch all resource.
That brings a whole new light to what you said.
Like Paul to Timothy, there is a certain degree of restraint involved in a leadership role.
My bad for not reading into your thought pattern here.
Question: so should a WL have a sense of pride and ambition towards his/her position in the church service. I mean, I want to be the best WL I can be on any given service day!
Same with opinions, as a WL, you must have an opinion on matters, right?
Personally, I would hate to be under a WL that has an underwhelming attitude.
I think you're talking about different things; attitude is not the same as self-worship.
Pride in his/her work, vs being prideful.
Ambitious for the Kingdom, not for aggrandizement.
Opinions about how things should be, not opinionated.
I'm usually eager to be the best, dig into my team to excel, and am willing to argue any point I'm fully convinced of; on good days I don't let that become an egocentric necessity to win.
