On Sunday we learned that leaders are those with the heart of a servant.
“Whoever wants to be the most important person must take the last place and be a servant to everyone else.” Mark 9:35
We know who they are. They are the people at actionchurch who not only do those jobs that no one else wants to do – but they do them without fanfare or glory. They are humble in spirit. They work where it is hot and dirty. They scrub and clean toilets. They pray for and serve the worst of humanity in the worst conditions. They are the first in and the last out.
We look up to servant leaders. We admire their humble service. We aspire to serve with the same selfless devotion that we witness when we see them giving of their time and talents with little or no earthly reward.
They inspire us.
There are so many servant leaders within actionchurch who have inspired me over the years. This Valentine’s Day I want to take the opportunity to thank our leaders from the bottom of my heart. I want to be more like those that work in the background with little thanks and even less recognition. I want to be a part of bigger things to come in North York. I want to learn more so I can teach more. I want to do more so I can reach more people for Christ. I want to be a servant with a humble heart.
I’m thanking those who inspire me, and I’m hoping you will take the time to give a shout out to those who inspire you as well!
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams
