He who would lead, let him serve. (Chuck Colson & Jack Eckerd, authors)
When we think of great leaders, we usually picture a general ahead of his troops or a great orator motivating his followers to grand pursuits. But the greatest leader in all of history said, “I am among you as one who serves” (Luke 22:27). And his service ultimately culminated in the sacrifice of his life for our benefit. Determining to be servants, we may well become leaders.
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:28)
