What life-changing moments have shaped your life and leadership? Was there a person or situation that shaped how you think about what it means to be a leader or what it looks like to lead others? Perhaps someone displayed a real interest in you and your potential. Perhaps someone challenged you to live differently or encouraged you to develop yourself in some way. Perhaps a moment of failure caused you to realize you needed to change. When did you hear Jesus’ call to lead by serving? What difference has encountering Jesus made in your leadership?
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. —Mark 1:17-18
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for calling us to leave what we have done in the past to follow You, for giving our lives eternal value and purpose as we follow Your call and example. May we serve others in Your name and for Your purposes today, amen.
