WHO A LEADER

childhood i encourage
various principles was taught
studious and hard-working
while maintaining great sphere of influence

few times we argue
who is greater?
higher position demanded
a position of priority and leadership

the master responded in
principle of leadership
he never condemn desire to be great
but to be servant-hood


Nothing wrong in desiring greatness or
A position of leadership
However, the ONLY true test of genuine greatness
is SELFLESS SERVICE.

the need for true humility 
(not eye-service) in leadership,
but willingness to SERVE not to be SERVED.
You may not be the President of a nation 
BUT we are all 'leaders' in one capacity

Can you check those within your sphere of influence?
Can they see the 'servant' heart in you?
Are you in a position because of the wealth and riches 
OR because you're interested in building lives?

Together, we can re-define leadership
Let it begin with YOU!
