Leadership – Servanthood

"It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:26-28)

True spiritual leadership, true greatness is achieved not by being served by others, but in giving oneself to selfless service to them.  A true spiritual leader is concerned much more with the service he can render to God and others than with the benefits and pleasure that he can extract from having others serve him.  He aims to put more into life than he takes out of it.
