We need more leaders with this quality…

25 Sep

I recently read of one man who said of another,

“Here was the secret of his personality: he loved people more than power.”

We can add to that of course, we must love Christ’s glory more than our own.

May God help us not to see other people as a means to an end but instead as people made in the image of God. We need to see the other believers in our churches not as existing simply to enable us to accomplish our dreams, but as people for whom Christ died and who exist for His glory above all else.
