Leadership Is & Isn’t

“Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar? … [Your father] defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know Me?” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 22:15-16)

Leadership has both an IS and ISN’T component.

Leadership isn’t about me.
Leadership isn’t about getting comfortable.
Leadership isn’t about getting.
Leadership isn’t about a title or perks.
Leadership is about others.
Leadership is about being uncomfortable with the discomfort of others.
Leadership is about giving.
Leadership is about serving.

True leaders know God and show God to others.

UPDATE: So many of these thoughts were the seed thoughts for topics I elaborate on in my book Shepherd Leadership: The Metrics That Really Matter.
