Some issues on Human Nature
In the last few weeks I have come to apprecaite some of these observations in the context of servant Leadership (kudos to Dan Reiland for penning them):
People gravitate to the behavior that resonates with their weaknesses. It is human nature to lean into our weakness. We are most susceptible at our weakest point. People will do things in order to compensate for or cover their fears. People will rise above their weaknesses and tap into a potential greater than their own when believed in and treated with dignity and respect. People will step out in faith in order to live above their fears when challenged with something meaningful. People will humble themselves and give themselves away when they see the power of Christ resident in you as you model a humble servant's spirit.
