It is hopeful and wonderful and right to dream about the great things God will do with our lives. But what if our greatness as leaders really has to do with helping others be great? Like many things about the Kingdom of God, servant-leadership seems like a paradox. The last will be first and the first will be last. {Matthew 20:16}

It takes humility, yes, but also a great deal of confidence and security as a leader to be able to say to those you lead, “You will do greater things than me,” and then empower them to do so. Jesus remains our greatest example of leadership, “Truly, I say to you, He who believes in Me, the works that I do, He will do also; and greater works than these he will do.” {John 14:12}

“Greatness comes through building others up, by aiming for their greatness more than we aim for our own.” — Chip Ingram
