"You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave - just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." ~ Matthew 20:25-28, NKJV
Leaders often are domineering and overbearing. They often rule with arogance and use fear to pressure their followers. This is not the way I want you to lead. Instead, I want you to lead with humility and gentleness, I want you to lead in a spirit of serving people, including your family. I want you to guide with love and honour instead of demands and fear. I want you to lead by example. Don't just tell your children to trust Me and run to Me, but let them see you trusting Me and running to me. Teach others My ways with My words as well as with your life as you imitate My ways. As you lead others in this way, they will learn to lead in the same way by following your example. Watc how you lead your family and others. Take notice: Are you leading by lording or by serving? Become an imitator of Me.
"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me." ~ John 14:21
