William Booth, a missionary pastor, dedicated his life to helping people in need. 100 years have passed since his death in 1912, but his remarkable legacy continues today through the many good works of the Salvation Army, which he founded in 1878.
The story goes that on his death bed, surrounded by family, frail and unable to speak, Booth mustered up just enough strength to scribble one final message on a scrap piece of paper before passing away moments later. The message had only one simple word – “others”. Is there a greater legacy? Is there a grander purpose? Is there a better secret to leadership? No.
Take Away: Others.
