This podcast is the first in a series of six episodes of the Today Counts Show that will focus on the practical leadership lessons to be learned from the wisdom of Paul in the book of 1 Timothy in the New Testament.  Jim Piper’s commentary will guide you through the application of this biblical wisdom and help put it into context for today’s leaders.  If you are not a Christian don’t be turned off by the Bible’s use as “source material”.  Keep your mind and your heart open.

This episode is based on 1 Timothy 1.  In this first chapter we see many examples of leadership in Paul’s letter to Timothy; know your purpose and don’t be distracted by things that aren’t important, have genuine concern and affection for the people that work under your direction, give clear instruction on what is to be done.  Take a few minutes to listen and be diligent in your education as a leader.

If you don’t have a Bible and you would like to read 1 Timothy 1,  you can read it online here:
