Lead Like A Champion…

Every athletic team longs to be crowned “champion.”

The amount of effort given and money spent to finish a champion at a professional level is beyond comprehension.

However, our influence as leaders provides an opportunity to be a champion for someone. What kind of champion is up to us?

The influence of true champions will not be seen with a touchdown, home run, three-point shot, goal scored, or crossing a finish line.

True champions are formed through the acts of kindness, grace, and love. A bed, a home-cooked meal, a drink of water, a smile, a word of encouragement, or a helping hand, are all key components to being a true champion.

Kindness…

Kindness applies to every area of the Christian life.

Kenneson’s application of kindness begins by asking how important others are to our life’s story? Reflecting on the most cherished and admired relationships, in what ways are they characterized by interdependence?

A Christian’s life is intricately woven into the lives of other people. How different would our approach to kindness be if our livelihood was dependent on others and their livelihood dependent on us?

Listening and interacting with others is crucial to demonstrating kindness. If Christians demonstrate more kindness in a culture that is characterized by self-sufficiency, imagine how different the world might look.
