Jesus’ humility and selfless servanthood stood in contrast to the religious and political leaders of his day. While some may object that selflessly leading by serving will not work, we only need to look at Jesus’ life to know the truth. Others may trust in leadership theories that advocate using position and power to lord it over others, or they may believe that they possess adequate ability within themselves to create change and achieve success. But we—we who call Jesus our leader—can confidently trust His example and mandate. His model stands the test of time.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. —Psalm 20:7
Prayer: God, as we follow Jesus, let our lives and leadership increasingly reflect Your character and Your leadership philosophy. We trust Your wisdom and Your way. Let every aspect of our lives reveal Jesus to the world around us, we pray in His name, amen.
