Today’s Quote: “You’ll do more GOOD if you aim to SERVE more than you aim to PLEASE”. – Chris Edmonds
Most people recognize Christmas as a time when the faithful celebrate the coming of Jesus into the world. So today, I want you to think through what Jesus did. Even if you’re not a church-goer or spiritual, I believe Christmas is about Servant leadership.
Servant leadership is about fixing problems.
So there are 3 basic components of fixing problems.
- Identify or become aware of a need
- A plan is set in place depending on the problem.
- Someone takes ownership of getting it done. This is where servant leadership comes in.
So how does this sync up with the story of Christmas?
God identified a problem with all of humanity in that wrong-doing (or sin) caused a break in our relationship with him. He set a plan in place of paying the price for that wrong-doing with the goal of bringing people back into a loving relationship with him. Jesus came to pay that price, initiating the greatest act of servant leadership in the world — dying and rising to make things right.
At its core, servant leadership is all about the leader being a servant to the people under his watch.
