Hebraic leadership dates back all the way to Abraham. Philos emphasizes leadership being geared toward crisis. An individual that “navigates” others who may be lost or in deep crisis is a good leader. Eventually, this individual leads his/her followers to “a destination not in space, but in time” through the use of a historic map utilized by a number of leaders the preceded them. For me, Hebraic leadership is further expanded by the Gospel message. We are called to be the light to others as well as the salt of the earth. Jesus tells us “You are the salt of the earth” (Matthew 5:13) and then follows this with “You are the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14). As Christians, we are described to be salt which is a highly valuable commodity that not only preserves food but adds flavor to it. Similarly, we are all highly valuable and capable of preserving God’s presence here on Earth and adding a little bit of flavor to the world. We are also called to be a shining light to others like Christ was and not hide in the darkness. We should allow the light to show our actions which glorify God.
