Spiritual Leadership: Leading With Great Love

Elizabeth 1
Though God hath raised me high, yet this I count the glory of my crown: that I have reigned with your loves. And though you have had, and may have, many mightier and wiser princes sitting in this seat; yet you have never had, nor shallhave any that will love you better.

At the highest of motivations, reasons and purposes for leadership - there is precious little that is equal to that of LOVE. And a kind of love seen in this statement from Queen Elizabeth 1. She acknowledges that leaders in the past and leaders yet to be may be stronger, more gifted, wiser and more able to lead than she has been. Yet of one thing Elizabeth is convinced: There has not been, nor will there be a leader who will have the amount of love for those led and ruled, than does Elizabeth!
