The Salt & Light Leadership Principle
Sundays are excellent days to reflect on one’s own leadership utilizing the Salt & Light Principle. Being salt teaches us not only to be a seasoning to the world, but also to be a preservative. It is through faithful dedication to improving others that our leadership begins to expand and become truly successful. Leadership is not involved in self-interest, but in the interest of others. Without taking time to notice those who follow your leadership is lacking. You do not have to sacrifice moral principle, but must raise others around you to possitively influence and encourage them.
Being the light teaches us to be an example, which does not give up or back down on our moral teachings. Instead it teaches us to stand for what is right. Light is the only thing that pierces through the darkness. Without light only darkness would exist. You do not have to become perfect to be light, but you must aim for a higher standard.
These principles can be simplistic in nature, but can also be philosophically deep. These principles are found in the Holy Bible. They are generally used to teach Christians how to live and how to influence others. The salt and light principles are also excellent leadership principles that are can help us to all become better leaders.
If you want to find out more about these principles, you can read them directly by searching the web or the Bible for the Salt & Light Principle found in Matthew 5:13-16.
