There is a great coaching adage used in football, “The low man always wins”. This simple statement can/should also be applied to the life of a leader in the church. Spiritual leaders are to exhibit humility and meekness in all that they say and do.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:3
In a culture that champions swagger and vibrato, leadership in the church should stand in stark contrast to the world. Our leadership cues should be taken from Christ and not CEOs or celebrities. Remember Jesus words:
“If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” Mark 9:35
How do you get “low” as a leader? Maybe we’d experience more wins in the church by getting down and dirty like God instructs us in His Word.
