servant leadership

1326161420 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.
