It all starts with Leadership! The Bible says in The Message version of Matthew 20:28, “He said, “You’ve observed how godless rulers throw their weight around, how quickly a little power goes to their heads. It’s not going to be that way with you. Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for the many who are held hostage.”

Are you still willing to let someone go before you? Are you still willing to serve and get off the front row and forget what your title is for a moment? Are you willing to go back to the basics of your salvation and remember the very example that Christ did for you?
Maybe it is time to check your heart. I know I check mine daily. We are SERVANTS before we are TITLES. Have you arrived? The Bible says NOT until you enter eternity.
