Luke 22:25-27 -- On Servant-Leadership

"And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth."
Luke 22:25-27

I think this is interesting.  Christ teaches a much different type of leadership than the kind that we are used to.  Leading in Christ's way isn't just telling people what to do, or playing power games.  It is serving the people that we lead... making sure that they are taken care of, happy, and that they have opportunities to grow.  God, the greatest of all, encourages, blesses, and lifts us up.  He explains things to us as we are able to understand them.  As we go forward in our leadership responsibilities today, let's remember this scripture.  Let's allow others to be honored, let's do all that we can for the people that look to us for guidance.  Let's work on our humility, and praise others for their efforts rather than taking all the credit. :)  Let's follow Christ in his example of servant-leadership. :)
