When Jesus’ disciples quarreled over who among them was greatest, He called their attention to His new style of assessing importance. He told them that attaining greatness required becoming a slave. Leading would mean taking the role of a servant. Jesus’ own example shows us what servant-leadership looks like:
• We are called by God to serve and lead.
• We intimately know the people we serve and lead.
• We care deeply about those we serve and lead.
• We willingly sacrifice our own convenience to meet the needs of people we serve and lead.
