I enjoy the reading of Proverbs each day. Beginning on the first day of the month, I read Proverbs 1. I also like to read the same Proverbs in the Maxwell Leadership Bible, which has some very good lessons in Christian leadership.
I try to apply these lesson in my personal and business life and find that it serves me well in both.
Proverbs 2 and 3 poses an apparent paradox in spiritual leadership. We are to get wisdom and understanding (2:1-5), yet we are not to lean on it apart from the Lord (3:5,6). Even good wisdom divorced from God can become a snare. So how are godly leaders to think?
Godly leaders think big: They realize God’s vision is usually bigger than theirs.
Godly leaders think other people: They always include others in the mix.
Godly leaders think continually: They’re not satisfied with today’s answers.
Godly leaders think bottom line: They want to see results and fruit.
Godly leaders think continual growth: They want to keep improving.
Godly leaders think without lines: They let God outside of the box.
Godly leaders think victory: They want to see God's rule come to earth.
Godly leaders think intuitively: They have a sense of what will work.
Godly leaders think servanthood: They want to serve and add value to people.
Godly leaders think quickly: They evaluate quickly and see possible answer.
Have a great day!
