Is Being Popular or Famous The True Test Of Leadership!?

I find that I meet a great number of people whose number one priority is to “get my name out there”.

While the nation is crumbling, they want to cover the collapse rather than actually serve the nation and those who are suffering as a result of the collapse.

They seem to believe that having a large following means they are now accomplished leaders.

Being a Public Speaker, talk show host, famous personality, etc, does not constitute true leadership.

Anyone can talk and have strong opinions.

However, a true leader is a servant first and foremost.

True leaders seek to serve those who are the least among us.

They are not haughty or puffed up.

True leadership is up close and personal with the people who need help the most.

Jesus would never be an unattainable public speaker who requires you to be in the ‘in crowd” of a political ideology in order to get the time of the day.

You would find Jesus where neither the pundits or the politicians or the average public speaker would bother to venture.

You would find Jesus helping to provide clothes to those who needed it, visiting and laying hands on the sick, and ministering to those in prison.  Those who do these things are our nation’s greatest leaders by God’s standard (See: Matthew 25:36)

Don’t look to those who are popular for leadership, who are hand picked by political movements or party. Never follow an ideologue. They are political prostitutes.

Look to those God raises up among you who actually serves you right where you are.

Look, most of all, right in the mirror, for God is inviting YOU to serve mightily!

The ones who God raises up will appear to be the least qualified and the least likely, but they will be the ones who God uses to get the best results.

Remember ruddy little King David!

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”- I Corinthians 12:27

Don’t look for who man elevates for leadership. Instead, look to align yourselves with true servants whose agenda is to know and do the will of God, no matter their limitations and unpopular status with this world!

Food for thought!
