“When God shapes a servant, it will always affect an entire people of God.  You need to understand that.  For example, you do not sin in private.  God has created you in such a way that any sin in your life is going to dramatically affect all the people of God.  When you sin – that will affect the rest of the body.  If you have cancer, sooner or later it will affect your entire body.  And that is supremely true of a leader.  The degree to which you let God shape and mold you is the degree to which He will shape the entire people of God.”  – Henry Blackaby, Chosen to be God’s Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Samuel
