Men - Being a Servant Leader - for a lifetime

At Vinings Lake, our men meet on Wednesday mornings at 6am - yes, incredibly early! But it is a "love-hate" relationship - I definitely don't enjoy getting there that early, but once there, it is great to be around a bunch of guys - and we learn some good stuff together.

Today, the subject was being a servant leader. We are going through the series called "The Quest for Authentic Manhood" by Robert Lewis. It has all been good stuff, but today was definitely as Lewis put it "an outline for a lifetime" There were 25 ways to be a servant leader and all were very good. A few that stand out to me are:

1. Tell your wife something you appreciate about her.
2. Pray with your wife.
3. Do fun things and create traditions with your family.

These are just a few, but they are all good.

We can be creatures of a short lived feeling or "good idea", but in this area maybe the most important thing to remember is the fact that it isn't a "to do list for now", but "an outline for a lifetime".

Being a servant leader - must be for a lifetime!
