Leadership Essentials: Seek Next

Submitted by James Higginbotham on May 25, 2010 – 4:10 amNo Comment

If leadership starts with seeking God, it grows by seeking His righteousness. We all go through times when we become more focused on ourselves than others. However, if we seek God and His righteousness, we will allow His love to flow through us in its purest form.

Seeking His righteousness means being willing to admit to our sin. It means dealing with the tough issues in our lives: issues of addiction, issues of selfishness, and issues of pride. Leaders often are required to make quick decisions or deal with stressful circumstances. If we allow it, these circumstances can derail us from living a life of purity and holiness that God wants for us.

We must spend time daily asking God to reveal our sin, seeking forgiveness, and asking God for a heart to turn 180 degrees away from the sin and run to Him. We must seek a life of purity and selflessness for ourselves and for those we lead at work, at church, and at home.

John C. Maxwell often says that leadership is influence. If we are to influence others in a way pleasing to God, we must seek God’s righteousness for our lives. Only then can we influence those around us in a pure and godly manner.
