Leading on the Right Track…

Will Rogers once said, “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Some people are on the wrong track, and whether they sit still or move in the same direction, if it is the wrong track there are consequences.

The implication involves movement and an intentional movement in the right direction.

Sitting still assures destruction, which is not an option.

Even if we are on the right track, immobility creates a negative impact on the morale of others.

Think about how this powerful thought impacts your leadership.

The Love to Lead…

Love has multiple meanings. Mostly, love is associated with feelings. When couples first marry, the feelings experienced are associated with their idea of love. Sadly, when those feelings change they begin to think they no longer love the other person.

Biblically, love is intentional, seeking the highest good for the other person. When leaders are self-directed, it is generally because of selfish motives. Again, this is not love.

Love gives without expecting to receive something in return.
Love seeks opportunity to serve in all situations.
Love desires the best for others, even at the cost of personal comfort.

Let us always lead out of love and know the power it brings to leadership.

Relational Leadership…

“Leaders aren’t built in a day––they’re built over a season. Leadership development is not a class you take––it’s an intentional relationship you build.” Mac Lake

Leaders know that leadership is about people. Without building relationships with others, the work of leading is arduous.

This thought is even more crucial when we consider the necessity of developing others to lead. When leaders intentionally focus on relationships with future leaders, these leaders blossom and secure the future of the church.

The time invested makes a difference for every aspect of leadership development.
