Principles of Leadership, Day 12
Keep the right perspective. Read John 13:13-17.
My mom used to call it getting the “big head.” You know, that puffed up, arrogant way of thinking about ourselves. We think we are so good, or so smart, or so perfect that we can do anything. It’s not a good way to be.
Instead God calls us to be humble. We are to be like servants. No matter what form of leadership we’re taking, we are ultimately to be serving those people that we lead and showing them what it means to serve God. Our leadership is done through our humility. We have to focus on a finding a way to be able to point others to Christ.
We are to be leading through humility. When we do that, we will have the right perspective on ourselves, the people that we are leaving, and the leader we are to be following, Jesus Christ. Do we keep the right perspective about who we are and who is truly in control? Are we pointing other people to our leader Jesus Christ? That is the sign of a true leader who is keeping everything in perspective.
