30 Scriptures for Leading Your Life Well

Leadership and what it looks like to lead is defined differently by everyone. Some say it’s the guy on the top rung, the woman on the stage, or possibly the most knowledgeable.

I believe leadership can be wrapped up in three words – influence, servant-hood, and responsibility.

I also believe anyone can lead from the exact place they are in because leadership begins within us.

Who we are in our hearts is truly who we are. And like it or not, someday what’s in our hearts will come pouring out.

And to drive it home a bit more… who we are at home is truly who we are. They way we treat our family and spouse is usually the equivalent of our influence reach.

Jesus’ life is the pinnacle of what a true leader is marked by – humility, servant-hood, kindness, love, gentleness, raising up others… everything He did placed Him above reproach with men and in right standing with God.

Whether your title is CEO, stay at home mom, or you are unemployed you are called to lead your life well in the sight of your Heavenly Father. The famous quote, “God gave you the gift of life, what you do with it is your gift to Him” rings true.

May these 30 Scriptures encourage you to lead your life well, whether that is from a platform or in the quiet of your heart.

  1. Ellen Marie Dumer says:

    As a woman in ministry with a hunger to serve the Lord and other women, I especially needed this message. It reminds me of a phrase I read recently, “holy nobody”.
    That phrase helps me remember that it is the small ways of being a Christian, not the big ways of “doing” Christian ministry, that is important in the eyes of God

  2. Belinda says:

    “Who we are in our hearts is truly who we are. And like it or not, someday what’s in our hearts will come pouring out.” THIS! This is why I need this study – so that through the transforming power of the Word, that which overflows from my heart may be pleasing to the Father.
