Publisher's Description

Learning to lead in a culture of entitlement.

Overview

Writer Tracey Bianchi observes, Ours is a culture that believes if you work hard you will be rewarded. We participate in a system built upon incentives, praises, and bonuses. As a result, it s easy for us to develop a sense of entitlement that we carry into our spiritual lives. We operate under the unspoken assumption that our hard work for God s kingdom will always lead to spiritual and ministry success.

How do we keep our attitude of entitlement from damaging our relationship with God and our commitment to ministry? And how do we cope and lead when the rewards we feel we deserve are few or nonexistent?
