I think Glenn nailed this one. As followers we must give unconditional submission, not unconditional obedience, God gives us permission to disobey for only one reason. As leaders this article is right on the money. Below is Glenn’s conclusion but the whole article is worth a read.
As a new testament leader this should be our guiding principle. The greatest must be the servant of all.
A leader is one who demonstrates God-given authority by serving others and earning their trust.
Your authority comes from God; your leadership comes from trust.
