Tuesday 2nd week of Lent
"The greatest among you must be your servant.Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
When we think of leadership we seldom think about service. In fact, the more common view of great leaders is that they expect others to serve them, just the opposite of what Jesus says. What then is my attitude, do I wish to serve or to rule?
Why do I do the things I do? Is it to elevate myself in the eyes of others? Isn't it natural to like the accolades from others, to see signs of appreciation?
Jesus spoke at length about this. Humility is a Christian virtue.
The Season of Lent is a special time for us to slow down, look inward and make the necessary changes to truly become an Easter people.
