Servant leaders

Posted in prayers from the Bible tagged , , at 5:00 am by arthur

You know that in this world, kings are tyrants, and officials lord it over the people beneath them.  But among you it should be quite different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whomever wants to be first must become your slave. For even I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others, and to give my life as a ransom for many.

– Matthew 20:24-28

 

Pray this for yourself – that you would lead by serving

Pray this for your leaders: church, work, government – lovingly asking they lead by serving
