Morning Thrive - "Selflessness"

Written by Pastor Craig Etheredge  |  Found in: Morning Thrive


Hey everybody! Welcome back to Morning Thrive. We’re talking about leadership, and selfless leadership is really the kind of leadership that Jesus advocated. When He was with his disciples they were all talking about how they were going to be at the top of the heap, the corner office and they were going to be at His right hand when He comes into His prominence. And Jesus said in Matthew 20:25, ”You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.” In other words, the typical pattern in the Gentile world is position, power, authority and climbing the ladder. Then He says this, “Not so with you. Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant,” You see, Jesus said biblical leadership is not about you, it’s about others. It’s not about position, power, authority or top of the heap. It’s about serving others, caring for others and putting others first. Now, are you a leader like that? Do you put others first? Are you constantly lifting others, and even taking a step back from yourself? That’s Jesus style leadership. We’re going to talk more about that this week, but why don’t you ask God to help you do that today?
