The Last... The Least... The Lost
Have you ever noticed how Jesus tended to gravitate towards those who were in pain or in need? Probably so, because many have commented on this remarkable quality of how Jesus lived and led. Rather than seeking influence among those in authority or position, Jesus always moved toward those in need—who had nothing to offer in return but their problems.
In fact, Jesus would often receive criticism for His affiliation for those outside the religious or social establishment. One time, He responded to their remarks by reminding His critics that it is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick (Matthew 9:12).
This makes me ask a few important questions about my leadership:
- Does my leadership drift toward or away from those in need?
- Who am I currently helping that cannot help me back?
- When was the last time I received criticism for reaching outside the established norms to help those who are far from God?
- What pain does God want to touch and heal through my servant leadership?
