God asks leaders to use His authority correctly by freeing people and being gentle. Doing those two things will result in leading correctly.
As a reminder, leadership is misunderstood. All of the attention is focused on the leader. The world’s view of leadership is self-absorbed. That creates a bad leadership structure. If people aren’t doing what you want, you will become defensive and let them know you are the boss, the big man, and the leader.
When you try to prove you are the leader, most often you are no longer leading. You are a dictator and worse, you are reacting and responding, not leading. Leadership is not about you! Leadership is about serving.
