Leaders, Care for Your People

Margaret and I am presently reading the excellent New York Time's top selling history book, "George Washington's Secret Six (The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution)." Lots of lessons for leaders and illustrations as in the book of Proverbs such as: caring for your people, willing to suffer for a cause, listening to others, taking advise, etc. One thing the book brings out is that there did not have to be a revolution. If Britain had been more compassionate, soldiers not so cruel and especially not demanding overwhelming and burdensome taxes! King George especially refused to listen to the colonist in any regard! So the revolution.

As a Christian leader, do you serve your people or do you look upon them as serving you? Are you a servant or a tyrant? As a Christian, and especially a Christian leader, do you serve Christ by serving others to the glory of God?
