This is a way of being a leader that has care and empathy for others as much as anything. A servant leader understands that we is far greater than me. They include others in decision making, they pay attention to the growth and potential of those around them, they are not only good for a group or organization, their presence is necessary for sustainable growth and success. You know a servant leader when you see one as they tend to be different from the majority of leaders…they listen, they have high self-awareness and they are often shining a spot light on others. The greatest example of a servant leader we have is Jesus Christ…He gave of Himself to everyone and anyone, no matter what the “rules” of society were at the time. He taught others and set them up for growth and success, and with Him as their leader, the disciples spread the message that has changed the world like nothing ever has or ever will. They shared the Good News and it is still impacting the world today. They were leaders working to serve as they were taught, knowing the greatest success will come when you empower others to be future leaders. Seek the Lord Jesus Christ and His leadership as He is always working for your good. Amen.
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
