Want Success? Lower Yourself.

'Whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.' Mark 10:43 NKJ

Pastor Andy Stanley says that you don’t need character in order to be a great leader. At first sight this looks plain wrong. When you look into it, it’s obvious. History teaches us that lots of people achieve greatness through lying, cheating, stealing, murdering, slandering and backstabbing their way to the top. Just read 1 and 2 Kings—prime material for a hit TV series. There’s a difference between great leaders and leaders with character. But it’s only the second sort who are actually worth following. Think for a moment about the people who’ve been able to motivate you. Most of us are (hopefully) inspired by people of integrity who’ve gone through suffering with determination, who’ve proved true greatness through overcoming challenges. Jesus is big on that too. Look at His letters to the churches in the first few chapters of Revelation—each one is packed with His shoulder–to–shoulder encouragement to ‘Hold on! Keep in there!’ Each one ends by mentioning the rewards He has planned for people who hang in until they get the victory. That’s what we mean by ‘leaders with character’. If your desire is simply fame, notability or even notoriety, then you’ll avoid learning to serve. But if you want to be one of those leaders who’s worth following, then you should begin to learn the true grit of servanthood. Paul says that Jesus humbled Himself, and in humbling Himself God exalted Him to the highest place (Philippians 2:5–8). Greatness starts as you humble yourself and take on all the ways of a servant. Serve someone today.
