I’ve long defined leadership as a person’s ability to offer service and their willingness to take action on behalf of others. But there is leadership — and love — of a higher order.
Leadership of a Higher Order
In this space I normally write about leadership topics relevant to the workplace. However, on this Memorial Day Weekend 2020, I instead address leadership of a higher order.
I’ve long defined leadership as a person’s ability to offer service and their willingness to take action on behalf of others. But my definition of leadership pales in comparison to a far greater definition of leadership and love.
In the Holy Bible’s Gospel of John, Chapter 15, Verse 13, Jesus reminds us, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (New King James Version)
This Memorial Day weekend I plan to pause and remember gratefully the services offered, actions taken and sacrifices given — including the sacrifice of life itself — by soldiers, sailors and airmen and airwomen, on behalf of friends, country and the freedoms we enjoy. May God richly bless them all.
