Serve

Leaders are called to serve and care for those they minister to. Jesus, our example of a leader, came to this world to serve. How much more should we, as under-shepherds, serve those assigned to our care.

“And [Jesus] said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’ But not so with you, but let him who is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as the servant.” (Luke 22:25-26; NASB)

“For even I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others.” (Matthew 20:28; NLT)

“You have not taken care of the weak. You have not tended the sick or bound up the broken bones. You have not gone looking for those who have wandered away and are lost. Instead, you have ruled them with force and cruelty. So my sheep have been scattered without a shepherd.” (Ezekiel 34:4-5; NLT)
