4 hearts of a leader

December 2, 2013

Good Monday morning! I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving holiday. Now we are in the season of Advent – preparing our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please take time each day of this Advent season to still your heart and to reflect on the goodness and greatness of God shown to us through the birth of Jesus.

As I have mentioned before, Leadership as an Identity is my favorite book on spiritual leadership. In the book, Dr. Loritts quotes Ted Kimmel on leaders and Ted gives the following qualities or “hearts” of a leader:

“A humble heart – a reverence for God and a respect for others.

A grateful heart – an appreciation for what he has been given and who has given it.

A generous heart – a great delight in sharing with others what God has entrusted to him.

A servant’s heart – a willingness to take action in order to help bring the best out of everyone around him. 

So – how is your heart today? Where do you need to grow?

Peace and grace to you,
