A LESSON IN LEADERSHIP
Why is it significant to have a lesson in leadership? It is significant because when we decide to be a leader of ourselves or others, we activate the witness. What is the witness? The witnesses is when we can observe ourselves or observe someone else call. Only from this place, are we able to observe without judgment. Always seeking to understand. When we apply this perspective to our own personal lives, we can shed light for continued growth behind all the bitterness, resentment, hurt, guilt, shame, pain, etc. The first lesson in leader ship is the ability to release all demands and expectations that keep you in judgment of self and others. The second lesson in leadership is to reframe our perspective, remembering our perspective is our reality, and not anyone else’s. Therefore, we are to renew our minds in order to put on the spiritual lenses of Christ.
The definition of leadership is the ability to influence others. Therefore, in order to influence others, one must be given another’s trust. We begin interpreting people and events from a place of curiosity and a desire to truly understand. Once we understand how God has made us and our perceptions, we can understand why it is important to focus on our own model of the world and not others.
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment, you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Matthew 7:1-3
Tips and Nuggets
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan. Proverbs 29:2
From Genesis to Revelation you will find People prospered under leaders who honored God and sought after Him, but we are oppressed by leaders who did not. Peter reminds us that leaders should be like shepherds, caring for and watching over the group of people they’ve been entrusted with. This reference to shepherds may not mean a lot to us today, but it’s a perfect description of the kind of leader God calls us to be. A shepherd knew the sheep in his flock. He named them and cared for them, inspecting their health and teaching them his voice. If a sheep wandered away, the shepherd didn’t forget about it or hoped it would come back. He went to it, found it, and brought it back to the flock. Likewise, a leader should know his people. He should speak to them regularly, ask genuine questions to care for them, and do all he can to serve his team.

You may not see too many examples of godly leadership to imitate, but you can go first! You can lead as Christ would lead and allow your example to be contagious to those around you. Be a leader who honors and submits to God’s authority; serves, knows, and cares for others; and is someone others want to follow.

Going Deeper in the Word
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves."- Philippians 2-3

“Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves." Luke:22-26
As Leaders we sometimes forget what it's like to serve others. The Bible verses on leadership call leaders to be like those who serve as well. There's a lot to learn in this verse, but the main lesson is humility and kindness and a reminder to help and serve others even when you're in charge.
"He must become greater; I must become less.”John 3:30

"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."- Colossians 3:12-13
This is a great verse for leadership, these are all amazing attributes one should possess
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."-Galatians 6:9
Weariness can creep in for any leader. But this verse speaks about the importance of perseverance. While this verse speaks about matters of faith, this is one of the Bible verses about leadership qualities that can also help us navigate any and all leadership roles. Holding on to hope and pushing through the difficult times is essential.
Just as our heavenly Father leads by joining with us in our work, God calls each one of us to lead as a servant who comes alongside others in the tasks He has placed before us. It does not matter if you have an official leadership position or not. Great leaders are the ones who are following after God and apply the word to their daily living.
The first lesson in leadership is the ability to release all demands and expectations that keep you in judgment of self and others. The second lesson in leadership is to reframe our perspective,￼ remembering our perspective is a reality, and not anyone else’s. Therefore, we are to renew our minds in order to put on the spiritual lenses of Christ. A lesson in leadership is significant, because if you only love the lovable, do you expect a pat on the back? Run-of-the-mill sinners do that. If you only help those who help you, do you expect a medal? Garden-variety sinners do that. If you only give for what you hope to get out of it, do you think that’s charity? The stingiest of pawn brokers does that. I tell you, love your enemies. Help and give without expecting a return. You’ll never -I promise-regret it. Live out this God created identity the way our father lives towards us, generously and graciously, even when we are at our worst. Luke 6:32-42. Leadership doesn’t blame, it doesn’t look for the negative; instead, it looks to listen, understands with integrity with a purpose of oneness. ￼
