“It shall not be this way among you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.”– Matthew 20:26

In a world where leaders lord it over others – and sometimes use their position for personal benefit – and where so-called experts use their specialised knowledge to dominate conversations, Jesus offers us an alternative: servant leadership.

How happy the person who finds a mentor who facilitates her growth, makes her ‘discover’ something important for herself. How happy the person whose leader leads by example; he will feel empowered in what he does, and will desire to pass on that empowerment to others. How happy the servant leader, who sees such transformation enacted in others.

Lord, guide my way of leading.

May all I do be of service to others,

for in the other I see You.

Amen
