Does a leader wash feet? Or does a servant wash feet? Both. I’m coming to believe that a leader who is unwilling to serve is no leader at all. Likewise, a servant who is unwilling to lead may not be a true servant. The truth is that in the task of washing feet there is a tremendous amount of leadership principle and there is a unending amount of servanthood.
"The essential lesson I learned from Jesus on leadership was that he taught and embodied leadership as service. Jesus was a Servant Leader in every sense of the concept." Gene Wilkes, Jesus On Leadership, p.9.
