The Secret to Being a Great Leader


It’s easy to think that our leadership credibility is based solely on our actions. On our success. On our expertise. We think that what people care about most is that we do things well.

And while these can be good things, they are not of the utmost importance. People want you to make wise decisions, to be successful, and to be an expert. But the best leaders are the ones who care. The ones who are there for you, no matter what.

Matthew 20:26 says, “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.” God wants us to stop trying so hard to lead others with perfect words and perfect actions. Instead, we’re just called to serve others. This means loving them, encouraging them, and caring for them in the best ways we can.

So stop worrying about falling short in your leadership and experience the freedom of simply caring for others well.
