One lesson from John the Baptist’s life is that he was a humble leader. He pointed others to Him “who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose” (Mark 1:7).
Humble but strong leaders, resolute in their values and beliefs, make a lasting impact. Jim Collins, in his book “Good to Great,” says that this kind of leader is at the top of the leadership pyramid. Here are some questions to ask yourself.
Your flesh tries to rule you. Fight against it. Realize how its pleasures last only a short time.
Break the bondage by continuing to think of the eternal. Listen to God’s Spirit and submit. Give Him an opportunity to speak to you through: your prayer time, your Bible reading, your serving, and your praise. Yield control to the Spirit.
