Sacrifice means that a leader must be willing to let go of things he or she holds dear.
Sacrifice means that a leader must be willing to lose ones security. It means coming out from our own comfort zones.
Like a salt that loses its own to add flavor to dishes a servant leader gives life to a group and its members and puts the interest of the people he or she leads over personal interest.
The life of a servant leader is full of sacrifices but this is what separates a true leader from the rest.
Jesus constantly reminds us through the bible that to follow Him is to follow a life of leadership and not just any kind of leadership but one that is driven with a life of genuine servitude.
We have a lot of brave and bold leaders who made a mark in the pages of history but a true servant leader is someone who made a mark in the hearts of the people they served.
