Servant Leader

Matthew 23:11-12
“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

What Jesus is telling us is exactly the opposite of what our culture tells us. It tells us to strive to be first…to beat all the competition…and to win the applause of all. The winner gets the glory. Not so in the kingdom of God. Under the reign of God, the one who serves those in need and lifts up the underdog…is exalted. We have a choice. God gave us free will for a reason. The ball is in your court. Will you side with the culture…or with Jesus?
