If we want to be servants of Jesus—in the church and especially in the home—we must be a servant, not a ruler. We need to serve knowing that there is nothing beneath us.
We must also limit our liberties in love so that others do not stumble and to forgive others as Christ has forgiven us. Following His example, we are to forgive the people we are serving again, and again, and again, and again—even as they sin against us again, and again, and again, and again.
In all of this, remember that little ones are listening and learning. The secret to being a servant leader is found in preserving the tender heart of a little child, leading them with such care and tenderness that nothing would be a stumbling block for them. In doing so, we preserve, protect, enhance, and bless them.
This is the model Jesus gives to us to follow. It wasn’t something He just said to do, it was something He did. On the very night He was betrayed, He did was no one else was willing to do—Jesus humbled Himself and washed His disciples feet. It’s His example that we should all want to follow as His disciples—not just in the church, but especially in the home.
