The Leadership of Love

You can't lead the people if you don't love the people.
You can't save the people if you don't serve the people.
Cornel West, professor, Princeton University
Read this on the side of a Starbucks cup (I had a Skinny Café Latte). It is a truth that is woven into the fabric of the universe. For the worlds were framed by the Word of God, God is love, and love gives and serves (I call this the "algebra of love"). God so loved the world that He gave His only Son (John 3:16); Jesus came not to be served, but to serve and to give His life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).

True leaders love and serve, just as God does.
