And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Often, individuals aspire to a leadership position for the power to rule over others. But Jesus showed us that those who are in leadership should actually serve those they lead. Servant leadership is a term that is thrown around today, but few actually practice it. I have discovered that when I serve or give to others, I am more blessed that they are, both spiritually and materially. People went to Jesus for help and healing because word spread that He was a servant leader. Do your brethren and members of the community come to you for help? What kind of a leader are you?
