From Lead Serve Love, by Gregory Lang
Even the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28). Be a shepherd of God’s flock; give an example that others may follow, not because you must but because you are willing and eager to serve, just as Jesus serves as your shepherd. Christ will see and reward your good deeds. Even if you receive no earthly rewards, you will indeed prosper in spirit. Live as servants.
