The Value of…Compassion
The value of compassion is embodied on individual and community levels. Listen to explore how compassion comes to life for leaders, skills you may need to practice in leveling up your compassion, as well as the importance of systems in offering compassion to others.
As you consider what it means to embody the value of compassion in your leadership, create systems of care, listen at the deepest level, and remember that God is love. It just might remind others that the church – God’s people – are the ones they can always count on for compassion.
“The VALUE of…” is podcast series exploring what is important to Christ-centered leaders. Values are more than things we profess. Values are the essential elements that guide a leader’s decisions and actions. They help teams make decisions and know what is important.
Across the next several episodes we’ll dive into questions like:
- Why are values important?
- What does living into our values look like (and why it’s important)?
- What are examples of transformational ministries that can result?
- And what adaptive leadership challenges emerge when you’re living and leading from your values.
This week we’re looking at the value of compassion. Acts 6:1-6 sets gives us a way to explore compassion from an individual and community perspective. We’ll share stories to help you explore how your leadership is or isn’t exhibiting compassion with and for the people entrusted to your care.
