“Good Leadership”

Good Leadership is a channel of water controlled by God; He directs it to whatever ends He chooses. –Proverbs 21:1 (The Message)

Wow!  Good Leadership is defined by the world in a “results-drven” or “money-driven” way most of the time.   Even by some prominent Christians as “Influence” or “Power”. (which is partially true)  This verse describes leadership that is “good” as God-Controlled Power/Influence, or “Power Submitted”.  Not what we normally think of when looking at most leaders today.

What if the “old-school” existing leaders would submit and share some authority and wisdom of experience with the younger “emerging” leaders?  What if the young “know-it-all” leaders would submit to the older leaders and ask for wisdom and mentorship from them?

What if ALL leaders (especially in the American Church) took on a “posture of learning” and submitted to God in all things—even those things we think we already know how to do?  What if there were a “safe place” for existing and emerging leaders to sit down at the table and respectfully learn from each other?

If this happened, I think we’d have some “good leadership” in this world for a change!  May it be so…
