Leadership begins in the home.
As leaders we must understand the gravity of this one statement. If we can’t lead our homes what makes us believe we can lead others?
Peter’s mother-in-law is sick with fever. Let’s be honest. You must be a pretty good leader if you’re being asked to pray for someone’s mother-in-law! Leadership is all about restoring others, serving others and loving others.
Isn’t this the model Jesus left for us? He loved others. He served others and he brought restoration to lives.
Note what happens next. The crowd comes to Jesus. Jesus simply helps one woman. She then responds by utilizing her gifts. She served. Leadership is all about helping others discover their gifts and then seeing them act upon them. This builds the Kingdom!
Following this, the crowd comes to Jesus. Leadership is not about attempting to draw a crowd to yourself. It’s about serving the one and then watching what God does in the midst of your service.
How are you utilizing your leadership for the one?
