“Moses’ father-in-law replied, ‘What you are doing is not good'”
Exodus 18:17

All leaders – especially leaders with a huge following – need a Jethro, someone older and wiser who is not impressed with their success and who will speak truth, especially painful truth.

While I don’t enjoy it when my Jethros burst my bubble with truth I don’t want to hear, I am nevertheless thankful for friends who boldly speak the truth in love.

Suggestion: if you are a leader, it might be a good idea to find a Jethro who will tell you what you don’t want to hear.
