Leadership Nuggets

"But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave." Jesus Christ (Matthew 20:26, 27 NLT)

#Purpose of a leader - To serve others

The world’s concept of leadership is usually someone who leads a group of people; be it in a family, community, business or nation.
As you desire to become a leader, what will separate you from leaders around you? What would be your legacy as a leader?
The greatest leader of all time took the time to teach his followers about leadership; understanding the purpose of a leader.
A leader that will make the greatest positive impact is one who serves those he has been called to lead. You may be called to lead your family, a community group, a team, an organisation. The purpose is for you to serve them – do for them what will add value to their lives.
When you serve you become outstanding from the general, you leave a legacy that continues after your time on this earth is complete.
Learn from the Master who said; “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.” (Mark 10:42-45).

My challenge for you this month of October is to determine to serve others.
