Jesus modeled a humility that stood in contrast to the religious leaders of His day. Humility fueled His incarnation and ministry as He joined us in our human condition and in this broken world. Learning our challenges firsthand, meeting us where we are, He invited us to share His life, to enter His world and work. He didn’t hoard the blessing of fellowship with God for Himself but invited us to join Him and learn from Him. What an example of how humility powers leadership that empowers others. Will you lead like Jesus?
Come to me . . . Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. – Matthew 11:28-30
Prayer: Jesus, cleanse my heart and clothe me with humility as I live and lead in Your name. Teach me to do all I can to empower others like You do. In Your name I pray, amen.
