Some things I’ve been reading about great leadership:
Great leaders bless people. They inspire and encourage. Great leaders are distinguished as great because of the positive impact they have on the people they lead. In fact, they leave people better off than they were before the leader entered into their lives. Great leadership is important – but great spiritual leadership is even more so.
Great spiritual leaders do not do what they do for themselves or even as a way to become recognized as great leaders. You see, the end game for spiritual leaders is about expanding the Kingdom of God. They pursue greatness because they are passionate about God and helping other people experience the life that God intended for them to enjoy.
We are all leaders to some degree – we all influence someone. What kind of leader are you?
