Thinking about leadership, I have always struggled with the desire to be in the spotlight. For many years it was my ambition to be seen & known. I am finally perhaps accepting that I am not necessarily destined for the spotlight. In fact I suspect that wouldn’t be that good for my ego! Leaders are needed everywhere, in the home, in the workplace, in the community, in the church, and in government. Some are more prevalent than others, there are those of course whose names we all know. But there are many more leaders we will never hear about, nor comprehend the magnitude of their impact. These are the nameless, faceless leaders of our era. These are the ones who are not seeking their own glory, but rather strive to see the next generation raised up above them. These are the ones who are true fathers, faithful husbands, men of integrity and passion.
Where are you leading? What are your ambitions when it comes to leadership? Are you seeking your own glory, or do you desire to see those you lead go further than you? Thoughts… True leadership is founded in being a servant.
