Job Title

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 5:41 pm

Matthew 23:10 None of you should be called the leader. The Messiah is your only leader. 11 Whoever is the greatest should be the servant of the others.

I hear a lot about leadership.  How to inspire people, build a team, communicate a vision – all good things.  But the Bible places a lot less emphasis on leading and a lot more on following.  There’s nothing wrong with having a position of influence as long as it’s used for Your purpose and not for personal gain.  It’s not about the job title, the prestige, the benefits.  There is only one leader and he modelled service, not dictatorship.  If any ‘leadership’ I have doesn’t involve serving people and pointing them to Jesus then it’s simply manipulation for personal gain.

Lord let me take my lead always from You and follow Your example in everything I do.
