Do the non-Christians you lead see a different life?

A life lived like this…

Love each other.
Show hospitality to strangers.
Remember those in prison, as if you were there.
Remember those mistreated, as if you feel the pain.
Give honor to marriage by not defiling the marriage bed.
Don’t love money. Trust God will supply.

Our “follow Jesus” part of our life and our “leadership” part of our life is by no way separated.

Sure, there is tension about how much you say about church, God, Jesus while at work.

But there is no corporate law against living out any of the above list.

I’m so burdened by hearing employees talk about their Christian bosses they can’t trust. Talk about their Christian bosses that mistreat them. Talk about their Christian bosses that don’t act, well, Christian.

So stop being a Christian boss.
Be a leader who follows Jesus
Be a leader who allows how you treat people to penetrate every part of your life…not just your “Christian” life.

Love those you lead.
Show hospitality to others.
Have a culture of compassion for those going through hardship.
Live so the opposite gender isn’t scared about your intentions.
Earn money, but don’t let leading or owning a business be a money grab.

You’ll see that you’ll begin to lead employees who trust you. Not because you’re the boss. Not because you tell them to trust you. But because you live a life that is trustworthy.

How can you lead like you follow Jesus today?
