Servant leadership. The first time I heard the term, I was in my twenties. While I understood where the term came from, and to a certain degree what it meant, I still had a long way to go in applying it.
First of all, the term itself seems like a comical contradiction. The two words seem like they don’t belong together. And yet, for Kingdom leaders, it just fits in line with other Kingdom principles.
The least we can say is that the Kingdom of God is, unlike most of our latest tech, counter intuitive. Indeed, the Kingdom is a system of…
1. Exaltation through Humility (James. 4:10)
2. Strength through Weakness (2 Corinthians 12:10)
3. Freedom through Servitude (Romans 6:18)
4. Gaining through Losing (Philippians 3:7-8)
5. Living through Dying (John 12:24)
6. Finding through Losing (Matthew 10:39)
7. Receiving through Giving (Acts 20:35)
And to that list, we could add Leading through serving.
In this episode, we’ll look at just how essential servant-leadership is in the Kingdom of God.
How important is it, you ask?
Well, as the old American Express ad used to say: Don’t leave home without it.

This week, as we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we will talk about the necessity and the benefits of humility. We’ll also address the pitfalls of pride and false humility.
All great leaders in the Kingdom of God understood that without humility, there is no leadership in the Kingdom of God.
But what is humility? Is humility thinking you are just a little higher than cow dung? Hardly. And yet, many religious people would have you believe this.
The dictionary defines humility as: a modest or low view of one’s own importance.
Note how it doesn’t say a low view of one’s own capacity, or ability to contribute.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: freedom from pride or arrogance
I like that even more.
C.S. Lewis said: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
So, this week, we’ll teach you how to think of yourself less.

In the age of social media, this type of criticism has taken on an even more vicious form – especially recently. We now have teachers and preachers having to endure the worst kinds of online attacks and criticisms – even death threats!
This week, we consider how to deal with trolls, moles, and online haters… from a biblical perpective. Too many online leaders are burning themselves out trying to defend themselves, save their audience and please everyone in the process!See Show Notes
