Christian Leadership: How Can a Spirit of Excellence in Leaders Bring Growing Prosperity?
Powerful Leaders Choose a Spirit of Excellence!
As leaders, we must pursue excellence all along our journey of life and not think of it as a destination.
Maintaining a spirit of excellence creates positive results and growing prosperity.
We serve a God of excellence and we should desire to have excellence come out of us.
“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!”
— Psalm 8:1
A Lack of Excellence Equals a Lack of Prosperity
Not everyone has had the privilege of being raised in an environment that operated in a spirit of excellence. Too often chaos and confusion are the norm. A lack of excellence in an environment tends to create a victim’s mentality in people.
How on earth can progress be made when the conduct of a leader or group is lazy, slothful and non-committed?
Where there is no commitment to excellence, there is no promotion or growing prosperity. People may seek excellence and prosperity in life, but nothing is going to happen until the excuses and victim mentality stops.
People, whether they know it or not, are looking for excellence, and it should be required in leaders.
A Spirit of Excellence Brings Promotion
Excellence always takes us to another level and causes things to happen. If we want more, we have to be determined to shake off a slothful spirit and put on an excellent spirit; in order to bring out our full potential.
Excellence often requires doing something we have never done before. It requires us to stretch in all areas of our personal growth. This does not go unnoticed to others or God. Leaders that have a spirit of excellence will get God’s attention and allow Him to take them to another level.
We see examples of this all throughout the Bible and throughout history. Take a look at how Daniel was promoted because of an excellent spirit.
“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.”
— Daniel 6:3
Excellence is something leaders must continually work on and strive to improve and develop in themselves. Keep in mind; none of us are perfect and have it all together. This area of life, like all others, requires that we seek God daily for His help.
Believe me. As a leader, there might be areas in your life that other people don’t think you excel at, but once you start working and striving towards a life of excellence others will take notice. You will grow as a leader, and just like Daniel, you will find that a powerful spirit of excellence puts you in position for promotion!
May you continually pursue a spirit of excellence and experience a life of growing prosperity.
God bless you –
P.S. Has there been a time in your life you experienced a promotion because you were operating with a spirit of excellence? If so, feel free to share and encourage others…
