Leadership and direction

February 29th, 2012

I read this quote today and I really liked it… ”A good leader is one who knows the way, shows the way, and goes the way.”

I really like that it is not just about telling people what they should do or the direction they should go. It is about showing people and taking them down a path.

It reminds me of college where I had to come up with a definition of Christian leadership. Mine was…

“Christian leaders are people who are moved at God’s pace and in God’s time to God’s place. Christian Leadership is about taking a central role in taking people further into God’s plans and purposes and encouraging others into a deeper relationship and understanding of God.”

Obviously leadership is about making decisions, but as you can see from above, I believe a big part is about God’s timing, going in God’s direction and going in the direction yourself.

God Bless,
