Mark 10:42-44 – To The Leaders

Mark 10:42-44
42
But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all

-To those who would be leaders or the great ones in our society, remember these words of warning from the Lord.  It would be easy to hide behind such power and use it to lift one’s self up, but that is not what such authority is for.  Rather, those who would be masters should instead be as servants to those around them; showing them the character of Christ and so making them want to follow Christ all the more.  “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)
