A Servant's Heart

Servant Leaders give up personal rights to find greatness in service to others....

Mark 10:42-45

42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

I have been going to a study on Servant Leadership the past couple of months. It is quite intriguing to learn how Christ was a great leader, but yet a servant to all. He sets the example for us. Greatness does not come with power, but with a humble heart. All of us need to look at the life of Christ and let His example shape us into a useful vessel for His glory. He sets in place many opportunities every day for us to be used by Him....we just need to have a servant's heart and be aware of the needs around us.
