The Boss Battle: How to Lead Even When You Follow
Saul – What leadership does not look like
David’s Gospel Responses
1) Seeks the Success of Others
Miroslav Volf
“Forgiveness flounders because I exclude the enemy from the community of humans even as I exclude myself from the community of sinners. But no one can be in the presence of the God of the crucified Messiah for long without overcoming this double exclusion"
Simon Sinek – Leaders Eat Last
“the true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”
• If you're not willing to give up your perks when it matters, then you probably shouldn't get promoted. You might be an authority but you will not be a leader. Leadership comes at a cost.
John Brubaker – Stadium Status
“Coach, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a lot of colleges come to see me play each week. Most of my teammates weren’t getting scholarship offers or even being recruited earlier this year but now they are. By me not committing anywhere, all the college coaches who keep coming to see me play get a chance to discover how good some of my teammates really are. If I signed early with you, all the other coaches would’ve stopped coming to the games and none of my teammates would’ve gotten recruited.”
Dan Allender – Leading with a Limp
"We were supposedly serving the kingdom, yet we somehow became the king; and when we thought we were following Jesus, we inexplicably made him a servant of our dreams. The only real tragedy is the leader who never allows disillusionment to wear him to a nub and expose the godlessness of his busyness."
3.) Sees the Value God Puts on Others
John Calvin
"With all people we should look on the image of God in them, to which we owe all honor and love. You say, ‘He has deserved something far different from me.’ Yes, but what has the Lord deserved from you? We remember to look upon the image of God in them which effaces their transgressions and with its beauty and dignity allures us to love and embrace them."
C.S. Lewis
"The load, or weight of my neighbor’s glory should be laid daily on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it."
