Shalom Beloved of God, We are living in a moment in history in which leadership is highly needed. I believe many have missed the point of being a leader and it’s true definition. The essence of leadership is service with the resources that have been provided by God. Many so called leaders gather resources and began to hoard them for themselves, leaving the people to small increments.
This should not be, because the resources are indeed for the people in which the leadership serves. Jesus Christ Himself who is a perfect leader said this, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”(Mark 10:45)
Jesus understood better than any that His life (literally) was for the service of the called (the people). This shows us vividly that a true leader leads by example and the key principle of leadership is in fact service. This is precisely what our LORD told His disciples about leadership, “And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” (Mark 9:35)
This is truly remarkable it seems we have gotten all wrong. We do not gather resources to ourselves for ourselves. On the contrary if we are to lead well, we are to gather resources for the good and the benefit of the people. In doing so you will be following the perfect example of Jesus Christ and receive honor directly from the Heavenly Father who is Light Eternal, God bless you shalom.
“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” (John 12:26)
