Leading by Serving

"Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves."1

Many years ago a rider on horseback came across a squad of soldiers who were trying to move a heavy log. A corporal stood by giving lordly orders to "heave." But the log was too heavy for the squad to move. So the stranger on horseback asked the corporal to give them a hand.

"Me? Why, I'm a corporal, Sir!"

Dismounting, the stranger carefully took his place with the soldiers.

"Now, all together, boys—heave!" he said. And the heavy log slid right into place.

The horseman?

George Washington!

It has been said that you can tell a truly great person by the way he or she treats ordinary people.

Suggested prayer: "Dear Jesus God, you were and are truly the Servant of all. Teach me the secret of service and so enable me to find fulfillment in life through serving others. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Jesus in Luke 22:26 (NIV).
