Until selfishness morphs into selflessness, we're not ready to lead well. It's why so many systems and departments led by so many Christians are failing too.
We have adopted the same model of leadership as the world... "me first." Jesus taught and led just the opposite. Me first. If you lead with this mentality and claim Jesus Christ as Lord you may have the position, but you will never have the power you so desperately want. Servant leadership was good for the 20th century.
What is needed today and few understand, even fewer willing to practice is sacrificial leadership because we live in an ultra-selfish generation.
To lead well, eat last. Better yet, pass your plate to your worker who is still hungry.
