What do think about when someone says leader ? Now think about your life – Parents, Teachers, Brother, Sisters, Friends, older or younger – the people that have influenced your life ? If leadership could be summed up into one word it would be influence.
LEADERSHIP – INFLUENCE
It is one life influencing another life. The ability to lead doesn’t come automatically from age or experience. You cannot be given the right to lead from someone else – it can only be earned ( AND – that takes time).
LEADERSHIP – ACTION & RESPONSE
What gives a person the right to lead? Is it Position, Title, Rank or Degrees – NO. Our exchanges and interactions in our lives can be summarized into action and response – someone does / someone responds. We all respond to those that we know value our lives as equal to their own. People who serve others are most often valued by the people they serve as a response to the sacrifice. The key to becoming an effective leader is not to making other people follow BUT on making yourself the kind of person they want to follow.
THE GREATEST LEADER – JESUS
May we live our lives by Jesus’ example that no one is above serving others in our daily lives. In his love for us and giving His life for our forgiveness He also allows us the opportunity to serve Him by serving others.
