the wisdom of being a care leader is being able to lead as a shepherd, guide and nurture the sheep into safe pastures, a care leader will risk his own life for the sheep

the process of caring

The work of Soul, Winning and Keeping, eclipses that of everything else. There is not a greater work. Souls are worth gaining! Souls are worth keeping! It is important that we operate in the wisdom of a shepherd, substituting our own feelings for the benefit of others.
If temptation causes the sheep to stumble, the care leader must be in the position to apply the remedy for restoration, although the wounds may be painful, healing is in the process of caring.
Wisdom is a requirement in being fair and considerate when we are dealing with people, with is very important that we possess a sense of integrity, and weigh up the implications of our actions.
Therefore it takes wisdom to win souls and he that winneth souls is wise” The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth Proverbs 11:30
Not only it is Wise to win souls; it takes spiritual skills to win them and a deeper engagement of wisdom to keep them. Our wisdom comes from God and is received by asking Him in prayer. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraided not, and it shall be given to him.” (James 1:5)
Wisdom is defined as getting one’s self acquaintance with facts, and familiarize yourself with range of useful information, having an awareness of how things may turn out in the likely event of mistakes been made, here is where understanding comes into play, it guides the care leader on the right path.
Care leaders are encouraged to acquire spiritual knowledge, and spend time in the pursuit of application. When they spend time listening to God, they will eventually hear God speaking through the prophet Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. When there is insufficient knowledge on the part of the shepherd the result will be seen as abusing the sheep. Jesus is describing as he good shepherd, a figure of speech in which we can understand the context of symbolism.
Care leaders we must possess that unique ability of compassion to lead gently. And By getting to know the people that they are responsible for they will become better equip to deal with any situation that may arise. “Wisdom is the principal thing: and with all thy getting get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7)
Picture this amazing scene, that it might be fulfilled Jesus said” Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none” (John 18:9) the only person that was lost during the entire ministry of Christ was the betrayer, Jesus kept all the other disciples in good spiritual order.
Since the work of a Care Leader is concerned with the spiritual side of the church, it is imperative that a care leader be spiritual. “Ye which are spiritual” (Galatians 6:1)
No greater responsibility could be placed upon anyone anywhere at any time than the responsibility of souls. Nothing has greater value. It is impossible to place a monetary value for one soul.
Every Care Leader should prayerfully, carefully carry out their assign duties the thoughtful precision, by creating a relationship with the people they are responsible for, and be willing to risk their own lives for them. Care leaders responsibility includes:
1. Assisting the pastor in taking care of the flock
2. Aiding the member in a spiritual way.
3. Conduct a monthly meeting as far as possible in a place convenient.
In carrying out this great work, the care leader should encourage their member to complete faithfulness to God, and His church.
