What do you think of when someone says the word “leader”, CEO; Management Consultant; someone with a PhD? How about YOU? Do you know that God has called every believer to be a leader? (Genesis 1:26)
The impact of leadership is seen throughout the Bible. A good king = all is well with the nation; a bad king = things go poorly for everyone. Are you a good “king” or a bad “king” in your leadership at home, at work, at church and in your community? Remember, leader doesn’t mean being “boss”—Jesus said it means…SERVING OTHERS.
Many people have a master/slave mentality when it comes to leadership…that is far from what God means. To minister is to SERVE. Do you serve or always want to be served; do you go the extra mile or always wait until something is convenient for you; are you a worker or a shirker? Only you and God are going to know the truth on that. But so many times we have so deceived ourselves that our perspective on who we are and what we do is totally different from God’s.
Line up with God on this one…leadership means servant mind, servant heart and servant action. Endure the fire...it's producing pure gold!
