00736 - Humility In Leadership

Humility in leadership is essential, reflecting Jesus’ example of servant leadership. Whether in leadership positions or not, we can practice humility by valuing others and prioritising their needs. Leaders who exhibit humility inspire trust and respect, creating a positive and effective environment.

Philippians 2:3 (NIV) reminds us, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves." This verse encourages leaders to put others first, fostering a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Humility in leadership isn't about downplaying one's abilities but using them to serve and uplift others.

If we're not in leadership roles, we can still support those who are by praying for them. Pray for wisdom, strength, and humility for our leaders. Ask God to guide their decisions and help them lead with compassion and integrity. Doing so contributes to a leadership environment grounded in faith, humility and much love.


The best leaders enable the people around them to succeed. 


Father, thank You for the ability to serve and lead in Your Kingdom. Amen.
