There are many bosses but few leaders. A leader leads by example and does less instructing and directing. Much of the New Testament is focused on the behavior of Jesus and very little is focused on his direct instructions to his disciples. In fact, it was only after Jesus had resurrected and left the disciples, that the disciples grew into leaders. They had remembered Jesus’ example of servant leadership and had followed that model in their own lives as apostles.
Lord Jesus, may i take on your example of servant leadership and do as you do. May i learn from you in Scripture and may the Holy Spirit lead me in your ways.
