For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
The common assumption is that leaders are extroverted dynamos who rush through life like a tornado. The Bible gives a different picture. Timothy seems to have been an introvert, yet Paul counted on him many times to carry out vital leadership tasks. Leadership is qualitative—wisdom, knowledge, faith, courage. The personality package will vary, introverted as well as extroverted. God will give boldness even to His shy covenant people. He will endow the seeming milk-toast personality with surprising authority, the apparently cold with burning love and the butterfly-type with amazing discipline.
