God made us in His image with the intent that we would be leaders (Gen 1:26).
- He gave both men and women the ability and authority to lead (Gen 1:27).
- He told us to rule over the earth, not one another (Gen 1:28).
- God made each of us unique with different gifts and temperaments. This enables us to lead in our areas of giftedness by using those gifts to serve others (1Pet 4:10).
- When we do that, we influence them. That’s leadership.

It is a privilege to be able to use my gifts to serve others. I thank God every day for the gifts He’s blessed me with. Hide’em under a bushel? No!!

AMEN! Jesus also showed us in John 13 that leading others entails SERVING others.
