I Will Carry It For You…

Nearly every international airport has walls of people waiting for travelers to walk out the doors. They are waiting to carry your luggage for you. Or are they? They may be waiting, but in reality, they are looking for work. They want to carry your bags expecting you to pay them for their services.

Services rendered require services paid. Rare is the time and individual who will carry the load for you as a servant.

In a world demanding pay for service, it is hard to imagine servant leadership. Jesus teaches the one who desires to be great among you will be the servant of all (Mt. 20 :26).

Why is it so hard to see the greatness in being a servant? Why are most leaders seen as those who are to be served, rather than serve?

What about you and me? Are we willing to carry the load? Are we expecting services paid for services rendered? Or, are we serving because true leadership is based in being a servant of all?

    Beloved brother, it is great to read your inspiring article. When I did I remembered what Jesus said” Greater love has no man than this, that a man lays down his life for his friends”
    I pray that we continue to serve Him.
