The Essence of True Leadership

LEADERSHIP: More than just Influence
Leadership is not just "influence."

It is not just recruiting, training, and unleashing other leaders.

It is more than just multiplying oneself.

The essence of true leadership is summarized brilliantly in Proverbs 31. This is a series of proverbs which were designed to equip King Lemuel to be a wise and godly leader. He was taught:

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; 
Ensure justice for those being crushed. 
Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless and see that they get justice. 

If you can't do this... Don't lead.

(quotation from Proverbs 31:8-9 NLT)
