Terry, great article today. I loved your perspective on leadership modeled by Jesus-servant leadership.
I love hearing all your “Tov” thoughts put together in this dispatch!
And it was particularly convicting to me - God gave me that scripture in 1 Peter a couple days ago concerning my own leadership in our home. So your writings put an exclamation mark on it!
I’m so glad you are putting this stuff out there - it is needed! Way to go 👊🏼
You’re welcome, Ellen.
So good Terry! "We are to lead like Jesus led, and we are to be selfless and poured out for those we have the privilege and honor to lead." I love this view of leadership, and while it sounds "softer" than influence, power, grit... it's so much harder to lead from a selfless place and feeling honored that you're entrusted with people to lead vs. operating as though we earned/deserve it. Keep pushing us to Tov!
Wow! This is my new favorite dispatch. Great work! I love the idea of realigning ourselves with God’s intentions for us. Even better, I love how you humbly challenge the current cultural definition of leadership. Better still, I love that you’re living out what you’re writing.
Terry, such a good read this morning!! Though I wrestle with it, I get this type of leadership. It’s really more my nature. I’m going to share this with my staff as we’ve been talking about this subject quite a bit. I so appreciate you and this blog. It always makes me think and reflect. Blessings to you friend.
