photoOne of the best things my Economics Professor gave us was a word called “MBWA” (pronounced Muh-Bwah). Translation? Management-By-Walking-Around. Essentially, it’s that good leaders don’t just lead from posts. Good bosses don’t just lead from corner offices; good kings don’t just lead from thrones; good pastors don’t just lead from pulpits. And the Savior of the World didn’t just lead from Heaven. He got down off His royal throne and entered a manger among people at night.  Good leaders lead by stepping down and being around. Two weeks ago, I witnessed this!  At Church by the Glades, we have an event called “Trunk or Treat.” Literally, thousands of families line up to go from trunk to trunk to get candy. It would be understandable that Pastor David, after preaching allllllllll weekend long, would retire from this highly-social event. He didn’t!  Not ONLY did he “MBWA,” but he MBWA’ed with Lisa, in FULL costume! They didn’t have to. But they understood the impact (and the joy!) of stepping down and being around. If you’re leading, I hope you’re MBWA’ing. 🙂
