When Leadership Begins

Andy Crouch quote, leadership begins when, flourishing

Leadership does not begin with a title or a position. It begins the moment you are more concerned about others' flourishing than you are about your own.   Andy Crouch

Nothing new, yet one of the old truths that we must remember (be reminded of) over and over.

Leaders exist for the sake of others. Others do not exist for the sake of the leader.

The leader is a servant, a shepherd, a steward and even a sufferer for others.

Jesus was the ultimate example of existing for the flourhsing of others.

It is worth asking - who is flourishing right now because of your leadership? If you don't see much flourishing - maybe you aren't leading!
