Why Lead?

March 18, 2019

 

Everybody wants the leadership spotlight.  Our culture is saturated with examples of people with platforms they don't deserve.  You can become an influencer overnight because you create a quirky video on YouTube or you get discovered by accident for your talent.

 

Does popularity make you a leader?

NO!NO!NO!  Popularity is fleeting and based on your like-ability.  True leadership is about fighting for the good of those you lead.  Your a true leader when your sacrificial service to others improves their influence, not yours.  Jesus said be aware when everyone speaks well of you.

 

But TRUE LEADERS are born from following.  First-followers make the best leaders.

 

Joshua spent 40 years following Moses and serving his mentor.  Joshua was 80 years old at the time of His appointment to lead the nation of Israel.

 

People are looking for a short cut.  The motivation is to find the path of least resistance to quick success.

 

WHAT  HAPPENED TO HARD WORK AND SERVICE?

32 years ago I started working for a small store-front church.  We were happy to have 40 people join us on Sundays.  I had many responsibilities from maintenance to ministry.  The most important thing I did was serve my leaders.  I learned the greatest lessons about leadership following other leaders and watching them lead.

 

I propose that great leaders are made from learning to follow.  Immature leaders are self-seeking.  They strive to make themselves look important.  

 

True leadership emerges from learning to follow.  Start your leadership training by committing to follow another leader.  Serve them and their vision.  This will equip you to learn the greatest lesson of leadership: SUBMISSION.

 

Submission is the most important ingredient in your leadership training.  Following others requires humility.  Don't make the goal about your success.  Make your focus about helping your leader grow and multiply his vision.  

 

Submission and following is the road to great leadership.  Serve others and you will find your path to influence.
