Daily devotional: Servant leadership

Scripture
"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Matthew 20:28 NLT

Observation
Jesus gave an amazing example of how to lead, but it is so different from the world's way of leading that it always helps me to be reminded that He calls us to lead by serving others. Jesus sacrificed himself for those He was leading. He was strong and stood for what was right. He endured persecution for the truth. He loved each of us dearly.

Application
Follow Jesus' example in how to lead. Continually die to self so that I may truly live, and rely on the Holy Spirit's power to be the good servant leader that He has called me to be.

Prayer
Lord, thank you so much for leading me this past week especially, and through the weekend. Thank you for awesome time with Elise and the other dads at Camp Cullen. Please help me to continue to lead in the footsteps of the example You gave us. May Your name be glorified as a result. I love you!
