Servant Leadership Part 1

Throughout the Gospels Jesus had a very consistent message on his view of what leadership should look like. He pointed out that a kingdom minded leader focuses on service. The great philosopher Uncle Ben once said, “with great power comes great responsibility.” This is obviously a saying from a comic book but it doesn’t make it any less true. A greater amount of power or authority should be viewed as a greater responsibility to serve. When I was asked why I wanted to make the move from the classroom administration my response was that it would give me an opportunity to serve more people. This was true but I had so many other reasons. My prayer is that God will gradually weed out those selfish reasons and shape me into a true servant leader.
