Why are you a leader? Is it because you like to exercise authority or because you desire to serve (Mat 20:25-28)? Certainly, in the world, there are more people who seek status than those who seek to serve. To gauge which group you are most like, examine how you pray. Are your prayers selfish and self-centered, asking for things to be your way? When you can honestly say, “Speak Lord, Your servant wants to do Your will,” you will be the leader Our Lord desires.
