I think a lot about servant leaders. In this culture of gaining more, it isn’t a valued quality even among believers. The term was coined in 1970 by Robert Greenleaf.

I’ve read your updates over the years, how you describe attitudes and attributes of people you influence—and by how you serve them. We are sent to do the will and pleasure of our God. We give from our skill sets and giftings. We influence others, passing along what we’ve been entrusted with.

What do we have to show for our service? How do we determine our success? Understandable questions. They just may not be fully answered in this life, and I have a hunch God’s faithful servant-leaders are good with that. Seeing our Savior will be our supreme satisfaction. Hearing his So Well Done will be profoundly glorious.

Here’s my hope in the matter. That the people donating to your projects and to your servant-leading understand your commitment, and they support you for it.
