If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you. (Anonymous)

When some people are given positions of leadership, it seems to go to their head. They become proud, arrogant, and demanding. Everyone is to serve their needs and follow their directions. More effective leaders, however, have learned that they lead best by serving. Such an attitude actually draws followers and encourages them to do their best in serving.

The Apostle Peter to leaders: “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them . . . eager to serve” (1 Peter 5:2).
