Leadership begins with humility, an emptying process of self. The idea is an emptiness that forces us to look up to the one who can fill us with purpose, direction, and fulfillment.
When the quality of humility is seen by others, there is a genuineness that exists in the character of the individual that draws others to follow and emulate.
Recognizing who we are (and perhaps who we are not) and the need for complete dependency on God is a beginning point.
Once we stop trying to do it on our own and trust God’s sovereign control, we are starting to understand humility.
