Servant leadership

“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.

– Dr. Maya Angelou”

Mark 10:45 reminds us, for even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
The phrase “servant leadership” was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in The Servant as Leader, an essay that he first published in 1970. In that essay, Greenleaf said: “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. His organization describes
Servant leadership as a philosophy and set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, builds better organizations and ultimately creates a more just and caring world.

Today’s verse reminds us, for even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus served as the exemplary “servant leader.” He washed the feet of his disciples. Are you willing to wash the feet of those you lead? What is your choice, to serve or be served?


Dear God,

Thank you for the reminder that I am here to serve, not to be served. I pray that all your children remember that your Son came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. I ask this in your son Jesus’ name. Amen!
