Leaders Are Learners
"Leaders are learners," we hear constantly. Learning is a matter of acquiring new insight and expertise by seeking out knowledge and putting it into practice appropriately. We can learn through consulting experts and through reflecting on life experience. Where do you need to grow? Do you need to increase your knowledge base or hone your job-related skills? Do you need to improve your relational or leadership ability? We are learning to lead like Jesus, not for our own sake, but for the benefit of those we serve and the kingdom of God.
Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.—Proverbs 10:4
Prayer: Jesus, don't let me settle for "good enough" when it is You and Your kingdom that I am serving. Show me where and how I can improve as a leader. I want to diligently learn everything that will help me serve You and others with excellence. In Your name I pray, amen.
