Leading by the example of a servant leader is crucial for those you interact with or who work under you to witness

Have you ever pondered why some individuals within companies struggle with embracing servanthood? Some people we come across exude sour attitudes, with service being the furthest thing from their minds. Often, this sheds light on how their leaders treat them. Our conduct and character largely impact those observing us for guidance or looking up to us as leaders.

Jesus, the Son of God, epitomizes the ultimate servant-leader, and we can glean invaluable lessons from Him in the scriptures.

Take, for example, Matthew 20:28, where it states,
“Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Jesus exemplifies that genuine servant-leadership entails sacrifice, humility, integrity, and a cheerful heart to help others.

Jesus never harbored hatred, even towards those who were unkind or failed to honor Him as the Messiah. He remained steadfast in His mission, never grumbling or complaining.

Now, ask yourself, can you honestly claim to lead in such a manner? Take a survey of where you can grow in your role as a servant-leader.

Let’s close with a prayer:

Dear Father,

Remind me daily to be a person worthy of being called a leader. Leadership isn’t always easy, but I ask that you keep your Son, Jesus, as a reminder within me of how I should serve others. I want to emulate Christ in every interaction and be an example to others around me so that they will lead and serve with love also. Help me to create impact and be a leader who draws people to the Lord. Forgive me for my shortcomings and transform the way I lead to honor you at all times. I need your help in every area of my assignment. Please help me to be humble to receive instruction and correction from you. I have faith that you are with me through everything.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

Grace & Peace,
