Leadership is not someone at the top. It’s the person who takes the initiative and takes responsibility for either the opportunity or the crisis right in front of them. (Os Guiness, social critic)

Guiness is likely suggesting that we most often have an incorrect understanding of leadership. In his view, it’s the person who gets something done when he or she sees the need. You don’t have to be elected or appointed to a position of authority over others, you simply have to move forward when the occasion is right. Without doubt, others will follow your lead.

Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. (Ephesians 5:16)
