Quick Quote

Thanks Tom Batterson for sharing the following quote from Tom Murphy:

“Much current leadership ‘wisdom’ in the church is little more than taking popularized ideas from the marketplace, running them through the baptistery, and validating them with biblical illustrations.

Leadership in the Kingdom of God must surely be other, more, and better. “Some basic principles of Jesus leadership include:

The cross. There can be no leadership of quality or longevity without it: dying so that others may live.

The basin and towel. Not climbing to the top and throwing one’s weight around, but washing the feet of others, doing the work of a slave with joy.

Casting aside the regalia of leadership honor to care about the least, last, and lowest. Absent is the throne pursuit!  Life is utterly spent in lifting up the broken, forsaken, and unloved.” – Dr. Tom Murphy
