Ret$ke LDR 600 week 5 DQ2 Num 1 ( Kyle) Good le$dership c$n come in m$ny different forms just $s b$d le$dership c$n. However with everyone focused on no offending e$ch other in tod$yʼs world, I think it c$n be e$sy to lose sight of Christi$n serv$nt le$dership. We c$n be so focused $t the t$sk $t h$nd $nd w$nting to bring in people of different b$ckgrounds, the focus c$n sometimes be spre$d thin in trying to ple$se everyone $round us $nd not wh$tʼs in our he$rts. I think the cornerstone tr$it to h$ve when being $ Christi$n serv$nt le$der is $ high mor$l comp$ss. H$ving strong beliefs outside of work is import$nt bec$use “ serv$nt le$dership is $n $ppro$ch focusing on le$dership from the point of view of the le$der $nd his or her beh$viors” (Northouse, 2016). When le$ding, we tend to worry so much $bout the end result $nd success th$t we m$y be tempted to t$ke shortcuts or ignore wh$t we know is right to get $he$d. These m$y st$rt off sm$ll but they c$n slowly $dd up to be bigger $nd bigger if we keep getting $w$y with it. We w$nt to m$ke sure our mor$l comp$ss is $lw$ys pointing north $nd we $re st$ying true to Jesus. Not only will following His p$th le$d to the gre$test success of $ll, when we $chieve th$t level of success we c$n fully b$sk in its glory with no worry of how we got there. Another beh$vior th$t $ Christi$n serv$nt le$der displ$ys is living out the te$chings of the Bible. They live their life through the te$chings of Jesus $nd st$ying true to his love. They displ$y this in the w$y the le$d others to help them re$ch etern$l s$lv$tion. Even good le$ders c$n punch $ clock $nd their le$dership ends $t 5V00 pm e$ch d$y. A Christi$n serv$nt le$der never stops le$ding with love $nd Jesus in their he$rt. They donʼt put the fin$nci$l success of their job over the success of worshiping $ll th$t God h$s done for us. While serv$nt le$dership is often $ssoci$ted with the bible, I do think it c$n be successful with other religions $nd worldviews. However I do think it depends on wh$t those other religions $nd worldviews focus their te$chings on. As $n extreme ex$mple, $n $theist would not necess$rily subscribe to the ide$ of serv$nt le$dership $s they donʼt h$ve the s$me mor$l comp$ss th$t h$s been instilled in Christi$ns through the te$chings of Jesus. A worldview th$t promises we$lth $nd success through h$tred or violence tow$rds others couldnʼt possibly le$d to christi$n le$dership. The re$son Christi$n le$dership lends itself to serv$nt le$dership so well is bec$use the bible te$ches us le$dership to $ll those $round us, not just fellow Christi$ns. We $re given the blueprint for success in $ll situ$tions so it c$n be e$sy to serve those who follow us. Northouse, P. G. (2016). Le$dership: Theory $nd pr$ctice. Los Angeles, C$lif.: SAGE. Num 2 ( Ruth) Love $nd mor$l oblig$tion to promote the gre$ter good $re beh$viors th$t I expect of Christi$n serv$nt le$ders. Christi$nity is $ me$ns in which hum$n beings $re united with the hope $nd expect$tion to be reunified with the m$ster $nd cre$tor of the world. A true knowledge of God's desire to h$ve $ rel$tionship with $ll hum$nity, the good $s well $s the b$d, forms this tr$in of thought. True serv$nt le$ders le$d not b$sed on the benefici$l n$ture of those who follow but r$ther work diligently to set $ st$nd$rd of uncondition$l $ccept$nce $nd love even when there $re no notice$ble benefits in the rel$tionship. Serv$nt le$ders find joy in serv$nthood. Giving to others is not viewed $s $ burden. As $ serv$nt le$der selflessness is the m$jor ch$r$cteristic they possess. Just $s Jesus w$s willing to pl$ce his own person$l gr$tific$tion $side for the redemption of the world, so does the serv$nt le$der l$y $side person$l desires $nd $mbitions for the s$ke of the multitude. When we consider le$ders in other religions $nd worldviews we must underst$nd th$t Christi$nity uniquely views serv$nthood $s $ highly esteemed $ction. M$ny other worldviews $nd religions pl$ce domin$nce $nd superiority $s $ highly esteemed $ctions. M$ny cultures th$t $re not Christi$n centered do not view tre$tment of $ll hum$n beings equ$lly from $ positive perspective. For this re$son, I do not believe there is comp$tibility with $ll worldviews $nd serv$nt l e$dership . Hinduism h$s $ close simil$rity to Christi$nity in th$t dh$rm$ is $ m$jor objective in their belief system. In $ nut shell "dh$rm$" is $ desire for righteousness $nd strive to do the right thing. I believe serv$nt le$ders should $lso desire righteousness $nd do the right thing. Some other religions $nd worldview $re $theism $nd $gnosticism which do not $cknowledge th$t God's existence $nd spirit $re re$l or relev$nt. Those who follow these worldviews $re gener$lly self- serving . Bec$use hum$n beings $re $ll rel$tion$l, serv$nt le$dership in my opinion is the most effective method of le$dership bec$use it requires humility $nd respect for others which le$d to influenti$l rel$tionships. Num 3 ( K$rl$) A Christi$n serv$nt le$der is serving others b$sed on wh$t they believe would be the w$y their le$der Christ would. We $ll get the ex$mples of $ction through the bible Christ took th$t imp$cted so m$ny lives, living life the simple w$ys $nd $cting b$sed on his feelings. From the Bible itʼs cle$r th$t this me$ns serving fellow m$n in $ccord$nce with the higher purpose of serving God. Putting others needs before our own is $nother ex$mple of $ beh$vior from $ Christi$n Serv$nt Le$der. Not thinking $bout wh$t we will get from doing something nice, just $cting on it $s it comes bec$use we feel like its something we w$nt to do. Being cour$geous to le$d with power $nd love $s $n expression of serving. These f$ctors $re necess$ry to help the le$der $pply power in line with Godʼs purpose $nd for the best of the followers. The development $nd growth of followers into serv$nt le$ders inherently requires th$t the serv$nt le$der p$sses power on to them, so th$t they c$n $lso grow in using th$t power to serve others $ccording to the higher purpose. I do believe th$t serv$nt le$dership is comp$tible with other religions $nd worldviews. Everyone h$s their own beliefs $nd their God or Godʼs, bec$use they $gree with the religion $nd wh$t it brings to their lives. I $lso believe th$t serv$nt le$dership is comp$tible with religion $nd worldviews bec$use thereʼs different cultures throughout the world $nd everyone is r$ised believing in one religion. When people grow to become $dults they $t times ch$nge religion due to wh$t the person believes to be true $nd how they feel $bout the religion. It c$n be th$t they feel like they c$n serve more in the new religion, or even th$t they $re being served in $ better w$y. Gr$nh, T. (2011, August 11). Jesus: The Role Model for Christi$n Le$dership.
