Listening is more than just hearing; it is more than just understanding the words that are spoken. Listening involves hearing, understanding, and rightly applying what is heard to the situation at hand. Listening ultimately achieves wisdom’s purpose when we choose to act based on what we have heard. Jesus’ teaching about serving others as the God-ordained way to lead is valid for every situation in which we find ourselves. Do you trust what Jesus has to say about leadership? Your answer will be revealed in your actions.

Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right. —Proverbs 8:6

Prayer: Lord Jesus, let my heart be open to Your Spirit, my ears open to Your Word, and my mind open to Your truth. Let Your wisdom about leadership motivate my words and actions today. May I lead like You everywhere I go—at home, in the workplace, and in my community. I pray in Your name, amen.
