Lead by Serving

Leaders Serve…. 

H Ross Perot once said; “Inventories need to be managed but people need to be led.” 

Leaders lead by serving. 

The easiest example I can think of is a coach. 

We don’t see the coach out on the field physically involved in every play. 

We see them on the sideline constantly encouraging, guiding, and directing. 

Always watching and paying attention to help the team by helping each individual improve. 

Leaders serve by paying attention to the needs of others. 

Through serving, respect is earned, and trust is gained. 

Think about this. 

All “managing” does is keep things in order. 

We manage our house, our laundry, and our schedules. 

When it comes to those you love in your life are you leading or managing? 

Check your experience… 

“Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.” Big Book pg 562 

Lord, let us lead by serving and let us serve by helping others, AMEN. 

“Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,” Matthew 20:26 

 Have a blessed day Y’all!
