Learning from mistakes is common sense for worldly leadership. The demand for experience in leadership positions refers to the history of mistakes and even successes in previous decisions. It is estimated that such a history constitutes a parameter for future decisions. In ministry, it is not so. In evaluating his own decisions and actions in Galatia, Paul began by saying: “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel” Gal 1: 6. The apostle used the person of Christ as a pattern of transformation to review his own decisions and the Galatians' response in communicating the Gospel. Mistakes teach you to make mistakes. In checking your decisions and the conduct of your team, prefer the infallible standard that is Christ; see if you have become more like him: if so, then you have done well. This is biblical leadership.
