God's amazing offer

The principle of service is what separates true leaders from glory seekers.  Jesus, the leader, served His people.  Most religions teach that we are put here to serve God; yet in Jesus, God is offering to serve us.  True service inspires service.  The true attitude of serving is a softening agent that works on the hardest of hearts and situations.

Laurie Beth Jones, as quoted in "Cracking Your Congregation's Code" page 135
