Scripture Focus: Mark 1:14-20
Today, I want to talk to you about Servant-Leadership and how we can apply servant-leadership to our life as we imitate the life of Jesus Christ.
Before we dive into the core of today’s message, I want you to know that I believe that each of you are leaders. I also believe that you have great capacity to serve. But here a few questions for you that you don’t need to answer – Where does leadership come from? Is it something that is earned? Is it something that is given? Are you birthed into leadership? Is leadership a natural gift and talent that one is blessed with?
Here are a few questions I want you to answer. What is a leader? What are the quality traits of a leader? In your opinion, give me some names of good leaders and tell me why you feel they are good leaders?
What about a servant. What is a servant? What are the quality traits of a servant? In your opinion, give me some names of good servants and tell me why you feel they are good servants?
In your answers, did you notice that more of you were able to provide more examples of leaders and less examples of servants? Why is this? I wonder if our perception and understanding of leadership has shifted over the years to focus more on position & status and less on having a humble posture.
