Developing Leaders

Found a cool post about developing leaders vs developing followers. When Jesus commanded us to make disciples, I don’t think He meant to get as many church members as possible, instead we are called to make disciples, we are called to train them so that they may train others as well. This is how the principle of the Rabbi (teacher) and the Talmid (student) worked. The student would learn as much as they can, in the hopes that one day they will themselves become the Rabbi and have a student of their own.

Everyone is called to be leader, a leader does not mean bossing people around, sure there are priviledges in being a leader, but there are just as much responsibilities. We may not be the prime minister or a pastor of a church, but we can still be leaders in our own personal ministry and more importantly being able to lead yourself. You cannot be a good leader if you cannot first lead your own self, this means not letting your flesh dictate what you do, living according to what IS right and not what FEELS right.

I myself am going through this stage of continually building my own self leadership so that I can better lead those around me. This is a continual process, which is why my life will always be a work in progress (while on this Earth).
