Leo Durocher, a major league manager from several decades ago, had a saying. His motto for leadership was "Nice guys finish last." But, Jesus says: "The last shall be first, and the first shall be last." Our CEO's and executives spend fortunes on power ties, power lunches, and power broking. After all, power and control are what it's all about, right? But, Jesus says: "My power is not of this world... it comes from above." We believe leaders should have special parking places, the best seats at a banquet, the finest service at a restaurant. And haven't they earned those huge severance packages? But, Jesus says: "The Son of Man came to serve, not to be served... and to give His life as a ransom for many."
