There are many great leaders throughout history, but there’s only one person who has set the standards and embodied the true meaning of leadership—Jesus Christ.
Jesus made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a servant (Philippians 2:7). He came to earth not to be served but to serve mankind. He gave His life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28).
This 2022 elections, it’s important to choose a leader who embodies Jesus’ example of leadership.

Beyond Small Talk hosts Peter Kairuz, Jericho Arceo, and Paul Herrera discussed the life of Jesus as a servant leader to help you decide the right qualities to look for in a candidate:
1. A true leader knows how to sacrifice
Even if Jesus knew He was God (Philippians 2:6-7), He chose to humble Himself so He could connect with His people and serve them.
A leader should be someone who will sacrifice, serve, and go the extra mile for his or her constituents.
2. A true leader teaches and models how to lead
He or she does not only instruct nor dictate what they should do but models it.
“Jesus modeled servant leadership by serving others through the washing of His disciples’ feet and dying on the cross,” Paul Herrera explained.
3. A true leader allows his or her followers to do things on their own
Jesus allowed His disciples to minister on their own and be able to apply what they have learned from Him.
