As a Servant

In order to be a successful leader, one must learn how to be a servant to those that he/she is leading. The word serve is not a bad thing, but in fact it describes what leaders should do: to furnish or supply with something needed or desired. A leader should be able to supply his/her people with what they need in order to accomplish the task at hand. A leader should also answer the needs of his/her people. This is very important because without this the people will dry up and wither away, and they will feel like they are being used up and not being taken care of. And finally a leader should provide services that benefit or help. A leader should never do anything to benefit or help themselves, but they should do all that they can to help and benefit their workers, their community, or those that they provide services to. Luke 22:26 But ye [shall] not [be] so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
