Wasted Opportunities (Part 1)
Bible Text: 1 Kings 12:12-33 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: 1 Kings, Wasted Opportunities
1. Two styles of leadership emerge in 1 Kings 12, servant-leadership and authoritarian leadership.
2. Jesus taught that a leader leads by serving (Matthew 20:20-28; Mark 10:42-45) and that a leader lessens the burdens of others and doesn’t make them greater (Matthew 11:28-30; 23:1-4).
3. Jesus exemplified servant leadership: in His coming to earth as a servant (Philippians 2:1-13) and in His actions (John 13:1-17; Luke 22:24-27)
