“Whoever wants to be a leader … must be your servant” (Matt 20:26 NLT) Mac Anderson: Like every human being, I have doubts, fears and disappointments. As leaders, however, we must manage our attitude … we can’t underestimate the influence of our actions and attitudes. Churchill said, “The price of leadership is responsibility to stay positive. Whether you feel like it or not” A good leader launches out before success is certain… doesn’t run from confrontation… talks about his own mistakes before anybody else’s and acknowledges them before others have to discover and reveal them. He looks for opportunities to find his teammates doing something right, and encourages the smallest improvement. He doesn’t tolerate murmuring in himself or in others… is specific in his expectations… values accountability… does what’s right instead of what’s popular or convenient. Charles Stanley says: “Godly servants are all around us, but we often take them for granted. This is a tragedy we need to correct not only for their sakes, but for our own. Their faithful service brings untold blessings… Wherever Joseph went, the people he served were blessed. Potipha wasn’t a God – fearing man, yet he prospered because of Joseph. Find the people in your life who have the gift of godly service and spend time with them. When you turn your nose up at someone doing “servant’s work” you cut yourself off from a relationship that could laterally change your life. Each of us has the potential to be great, not famous , but great, because greatness comes by serving. (TWFT)
