FACT Report: What Servant Leadership Requires

Recently, leaders in the Tennessee Senate made sure a senator had no opportunity to present her bill to protect the privacy of children in public school bathrooms and locker rooms.

Then leaders in a Tennessee House committee made sure opponents of the governor’s gas tax proposal didn’t get to speak.

The way some of our legislative leaders are acting is quite a contrast to what Jesus said should be true of leaders, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them . . . But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant” (Mark 10:42-43 NASB).

Servant leadership requires leaders to give up control and put their faith in God’s good providence, to trust Him with results. And that may just explain why servant leadership is so rare.
