Here’s some great advice for anyone in a leadership position:
11Whoever is the greatest should be the servant of the others. 12If you put yourself above others, you will be put down. But if you humble yourself, you will be honored.
Too often as human beings we strive for titles and honors, and in the process we become conditioned to feel that those “at the top” matter most. Unfortunately, a lot of people at the top then continue this practice toward those “below” them.
If you’re a leader or someone in a position of influence over others, I encourage you to take a closer look at the verses above and see if there’s anything you can do to humble yourself in your walk of life.
Anyone can benefit from these words, though. It’s easy in life to think we have all the answers or that we know everything sometimes. Guilty as charged, right here.
I can think of a number of ways I could take these words to heart…now it’s just a matter of doing it.
Humility is not always an easy thing to practice, but it is always something that’s worth displaying in our lives.
Have a great day.
