Philippians 2:7 (NIV)
“…but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness”
This verse frames servant leadership perfectly. It’s a model we can follow at work, at home, and in ministry.
A true leader is not the one calling the shots, making the demands, and extracting sacrifices from others…all so the LEADER can benefit.
A true leader is the servant who thinks of others first, encourages, motivates, inspires, and helps people achieve great results…for THEIR benefit.
Jesus Christ was GOD in the flesh. Who else would be justified in coming to earth and expecting to be served? But what did Jesus do? He came to serve…not to be served. He humbled himself and became like a slave.
So, whether you a leading a business, a ministry, or your family unit… Lead like Jesus Christ. Give up, sacrifice, and serve humbly…so that others may rise up, grow, and benefit.
