Model Servant Leadership

This week I’m talking about servant leadership. Jesus said in Matt. 20:26 “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.” This one scripture reveals the heart of Jesus as a leader. he concept of serving as a form of leadership always includes a long range perspective. Jesus knew only had three years of time with twelve guys before they became the leadership of the church.

The most effective long term strategy is to model servant leadership. He lived it. He was the same person whether teaching to thousands, or eating lunch with the guys. He served at all times. Today we can be effective servant leaders only if we model servant leadership. Too many so-called leaders preach one thing in public, but do another in private. There is no room for that in servant leadership.
