The “Shadow of Leadership” is a phrase often used to help people understand the influence one person has on another. When you think about who has affected you the most in helping you become who you are today, you will often pay tribute to people who are extremely close to you, Mom, Dad, Teacher, etc. But when you really think it about, the traits that you are so thankful for have been passed down over many years through many generations. It is the shadows of the great leaders who have come before you that influence the lives of today.

On Palm Sunday, Christians tell the story of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. With the story having been told for almost 2000 years, it is obvious to realize the impact Jesus’ leadership shadow has had among our world. When learning about Jesus and how he led his life and others lives, there are 5 shadows that stick out in my mind.

1. Jesus was Authentic. He knew his beliefs and purpose and remained constant and truthful through all situations.

2. Jesus was Vulnerable. He was open and honest to everyone around him and didn’t put up a front to protect himself or a certain image he wanted to portray. Jesus allowed himself to be mocked and ridiculed in order to stay faithful to his purpose.

3. Jesus was Accepting. He embraced all walks of life.

4. Jesus was Present. He was focused on the task at hand and gave every little detail 100% of his focus and attention.

5. Jesus was Helpful. He served and helped anyone and everyone he could with love and purpose and without complaint.

It is very clear that Jesus invested in others and built shadows that have impacted centuries of people. When thinking of the life you have lived and have yet to live be mindful of the shadow that you cast and how far it can reach.
