What leadership is not

Last week I alluded to a blog post about what submission is not.  Here is a good reflection on what leadership (particularly in the home) is not.  Leadership is not:

  1. Simply or singularly a man’s issue
  2. Elevating
  3. Loud
  4. Prideful
  5. A call to be master
  6. Limiting
  7. Mindless
  8. Weakening
  9. Autonomous
  10. Self-Focused [Beggar To Beggar.]

Again, a helpful summary from John Piper:

…leadership is not mainly a right and privilege, but a burden and a responsibility.I conclude that headship is the divine calling of a husband to take primary responsibility for Christ-like, servant leadership, protection, and provision in the home.
