Influence: Someone or something has influenced every one of us, and we’re all byproducts of our experiences. The more influence we have, the more we are leading others. As followers of Jesus, we are called to influence people toward God, and Christ is our primary role model for learning how to do so. When we adopt His way of living and interacting with people, we become more attractive to those around us. Learn how to grow your leadership potential and have a greater level of influence with the people He brings into your world!
Most of us have heard the saying, “Treat people how you want to be treated.” Did you know that’s actually biblical? Jesus gave us this simple guide for behavior and interacting with others as He was closing out the Sermon on the Mount. It’s one of the most important principles we can possess to cause us to have the most influence in others’ lives. In every encounter He had with people, Jesus — the most influential person to ever live — was motivated by love, and our motivation should be the same.
