God has always led his people with a motivation toward their good and flourishing. The way in which God leads his people is just as important as the places he leads them. Jesus’ life clearly shows that leadership is a humble posture of servanthood where rights are laid down for the good and benefit of others. Leaders are shepherds and servants.
