"6 Attributes Of Good Leaders"Nate Holdridge
"But, occasionally, there is a section. Proverbs 16:10-15 is one such section, a series of proverbs about kings. Surely, David is in the mind of the author. The ideal king is described, so the ideal leader is described, giving modern leaders quite a bit to consider."

"The Gift of Tongues"Back to Basics
"The gift of tongues is perhaps the most controversial and misunderstood of all the gifts of the Spirit. Some Pentecostals and Charismatics say that unless you speak in tongues, you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit. A few even go to the extreme of saying that unless you speak in tongues, you are not even saved!"
