Abusive Leaders and Faithful Shepherds

Series: The Life of David



1 Samuel

J.D. Greear


In this message from The Life of David, Pastor J.D. highlights the radical difference between God’s faithful shepherds and spiritual abusers. We all long for spiritual leaders who will protect us, be honest with us, and put our interests first. Throughout history—and throughout the Bible—it is tragically common to find the opposite, spiritual leaders who exploit and wound others. But in Jesus, we find a different kind of Shepherd—faithful, gentle, safe, and true. He came not to wound, but to be wounded for us. And by his wounds, we are healed.
