Leaders aren’t people who are served but who serve the people around them. (Daniel Reinhardt, High School salutatorian)
This high school graduate shared with his classmates a very important lesson that many young adults have yet to learn. Graduates today are too often focused on “what’s in it for me”—a good salary, great job benefits, and opportunities for prestige. It would be better to find a place where you can serve others and make a worthy contribution to your community.
Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant . . . just as [Jesus] did not come to be served, but to serve (Matthew 20:26, 28).
