Biblical Decision-Making Model

I show appreciation to God that even though we doomed ourselves to live in this world filled with sin,He did not abandon us in despair. He descended from heaven to show us how to live a clean life.  His disciples recorded His signs, miracles, and restorations in the Holy Bible. The Bible is also our guidebook to achieving greatness. The Bible warns us that if we lack intelligence, we should seek it. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: those who keep his commandments have a good understanding: His praise endures forever” (KJV Psalm 111:10). Dangerous Calling Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry, written by Paul David Tripp, is a thorough examination of pastoral ministry’s relevant issues. Hans Finzel’s book, The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make, is a compilation of the top ten failures leaders commit.  This review will feature a brief overview of each of these two books, as well as a comparison and a leadership model.


My favorite book is Dangerous Calling, Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry. I understand why ministerial treatment is so critical. I also understand how imperfect we are as humans and how much we depend on God’s grace. We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s greatness. We are fighting for our mortal life.The devil’s mission is to murder, steal, and ruin. As a result, we must never deny that we can be swayed and even fall at any moment. When we fall, we should not be swift to condemn one another but rather redeem one another back to God. We must be a reasonable voice, a shoulder to cry on, or a prayer companion to help them return to God.

We are invited to begin a personal relationship with God in Dangerous Callings section one, examining pastoral care. Man’s identity is inextricably linked to God.

“If you do not tie your existence to the unshakeable love of your Lord, you will ask the stuff in your existence to be your Redeemer, and it would never happen. If you don’t force yourself to seek your greatest sense of well-being vertically, you’ll always come up dry.If you are not trusting in the one gospel message and proclaiming it to yourself on a regular basis, you will seek another gospel to satisfy the desires of your unresolved heart.”[1]

The second section focuses on the dangers of losing your awe (forgetting who God is). We must never lose our awe or respect for God, and we must encourage everyone to do the same. We would be nowhere without God’s love, guidance, and direction. We should never ignore that we need God, though He does not require us. “The spiritual threat here is that when our reverence of God is absent, it is easily substituted by our reverence of ourselves. The only solution to living for God is to live for yourself.”[2]

The third section reflects on the risk of entry (forgetting who you). We must never allow our identity to be entwined with our ministry. When this occurs, our ministry becomes our sole priority to justify ourselves. When we seek self-glorification from one another, it is never as reassuring as God’s glory.The author of the book “The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make” emphasizes one of the most popular failures leaders make in Chapter 5: Dictatorship in Decision Making. Leaders who want to dominate and exploit their followers are not acting in love. You cannot alter or manipulate other people. Dictatorship leadership should not come from God. One of the most common errors rulers makes trusts their press accounts. They believe that the more powerful they are, the more they understand, and the further they should be able to influence others.

In practice, leadership is about influencing capital. The higher I rise in the ranks of leadership the more assets I must handle. The greater the leader’s duties, the more he or she respects the follower’s intrinsic value. This is an example of facilitative leadership.

My responsibility is to assist those I lead in reaching their full potential. I do not do the work; rather, others do it under my supervision. This is, in truth, biblical response to carrying out God’s work on earth: “He provided some [leaders] as priests, and some as apostles, and some as preachers, and some as ministers and teachers, for the equipping [motivating] of the saints for the work of service” (Eph. 4:11–12 NASB).God never planned for his earthly rulers to be rulers over their cases, but rather to empower them to do the necessary work:”[3]

Servant Leadership Model

The leader is portrayed as being at the base of the pyramid carrying his subjects’ demands on his back. He is the servant leader.





A biblical work model necessitates a comprehensive approach that recognizes and accepts three main convictions. First, work is both a creational gift and a corporate imperative, and human flourishing by work is God’s will. Second, vocation supersedes occupation, which means that our calling as Christ-followers should be the driving force behind our specific job (or “station”) in life. Third, work is just one part of a person’s and a community’s life. As a result, our employment should not be our primary or sole identification. Let us take a quick look at each of the three components of a biblical work model: creational, Christocentric, and constituent.

When faced with a decision in which we strongly disagree, our “self-life” always rears its unpleasant head.  We mistakenly assume that we would sway others to our side if we first express our preference and reasoning. This can even “act” relying on our interpersonal attitude and qualifications. However, an impetus for preparation and building unity has been missed, as has the opportunity to make the best responsible choice.

Finally, I agree that Servant Leadership is the best style of leadership. In our document, servant leadership is described as placing others’ needs ahead of our wants. It is a servant’s spirit. It manifests itself when the heart is compassionate, and the Lord’s will is carried out. The Savior’s worker spirit is revealed in John 13: 1-17 as he cleans the disciple’s feet. He urges his followers to do the same since the servant is not superior to his Lord. He urges his followers to do the same since the servant is not superior to his Lord.
