Leading By Example

 Leading by example…


It seems to be an American cultural norm that we all must “make it to the top” of whatever work or career path we are on. 
The media and marketing that we are exposed to on all fronts seems to equate success with clothes, cars, and other material trappings far above what most of us can honestly afford. 


“More is Better!” seems to be the subliminal message of success. 

The truth is that more is not better. 


While we need to support ourselves and our families, true success comes from becoming great stewards of what we are given and how we support and serve those around us. 


Jesus came to serve, not be served. 

He came to show us that there is eternal life through Him. 


Our faith in God grows when we learn the truth in His word and become in tune to those people, places, things, and situations He puts in our lives…

“How can I best serve Thee? Thy will (not mine) be done.” Big Book pg. 85 


Lord, let us lead by serving and let us measure our success through our stewardship of the blessings you give us, AMEN.   

“But the greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23: 11-12 


Have a blessed day Y’all!
