Shepherd | My Life Coach Part 1
Contemporary leadership literature focuses on servant leadership. That whole concept was introduced by Jesus. In this series, we want to provide leadership coaching from Jesus himself that will make you a better leader at work, at home, on the sports field, and in every other circle of influence.

When we talk about a life coach, what we are really talking about is leadership.
Influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone.
Oftentimes when the Bible talks about leadership it talks about shepherds, one of God’s favorite descriptions of leadership.
To explore the qualities of a good shepherd, it may be easier to point out what they don't do.
Imagine the word leader for the word shepherd and the people in your circle of influence for the word flock.
We see people all around us who fall into that category, but if we are honest, we admit we see it in ourselves as well.
You will never become the leader God created you to be until you make His Son Jesus Christ the leader of your life.
The answer is to look to Jesus as our supreme example.
What made Jesus a great leader?
Give and Take. It’s what every relationship comes down to - what do you take and what do you give?
Leadership is not about what you can get from the sheep but what you sacrifice for the sheep.
Leaders are concerned with building God’s Kingdom more than building their personal empire.
This does not mean we don’t have standards as leaders; Jesus’ standard is higher than any standards we may expect.
The issue is not the standards, but the example. Whatever the standard you expect, model it and go the extra mile.
Leaders are more concerned with the success of others than their personal comfort - inspiring others by the way they serve, earning trust by modeling Jesus’ love.
It never happens if we don’t follow the greatest leader. David describes what it looks like to have God as his leader.
You will never become the leader God created you to be until you make His Son Jesus Christ the leader of your life.
