“But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to become first among you shall be slave of all” (Mark 10:43-44).
People do not want to follow.
Sorry about that.
Ask anyone clamoring for high political office. They do not want to acknowledge you as their leader and themselves as your followers.
So, if you have a yearning to be a leader of people, you automatically have chosen an uphill task.
Better to become their servant. Everyone loves to be served.
However, not everyone wants to serve. Only the best and the strongest can serve.
Serving is hard work. Serving runs counter to our self-centeredness. Serving demands more humility and love than most of us can summons.
That’s why so few choose this way to make their mark in society.
