Leadership – God’s Definition

All our lives we are taught to work for accolades, rank and positions of authority. However, the Bible demonstrates a less obvious path to greatness.  Jesus said, “I came to serve, not to be served,” yet He was the greatest leader who ever lived.  The scripture, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” reinforces this same principal.  As we meditate on this truth, we know that the most accomplished people who have ever lived, made the most profound contributions to mankind.  God has given each of us unique abilities.  To the extent that we give of ourselves and develop our talent for the enrichment of all, will be to the extent that we become truly great leaders in the eyesight of God and man.
