Servant Leadership!

I know of a man who though a king was born in a manger

He lived at a carpenter’s house with not many luxuries

Parting the glory he once had, became a common man

I was thinking hard if there has been a time when he compalined

If he ever murmured about his earthly struggles

All I could find was that he always spoke facts but never grumbled

He said he dint have a place to lay his head, while the foxes have holes and birds nest

But he never questioned His Father, Why should I not have a bed?

I thought perhaps because he had supernatural powers it was easy for him

But, the secret was simply that he knew his purpose was to fulfill God’s will!!

When the people of the world questioned him he never argued!

Tough situations dint bother him, but he always gave solutions!

He trusted His father for four drachma coins from the mouth of the fish

Not to feast or have a heavy meal but to pay taxes and abide by the law

He choose twelve ordinary men to be part of his ministry

Taught them not with words but by acts even if it meant washing their feet!

Kings of kings and Lord of Lords was questioned by an earthly king

With all his glory he could have justified his calling but He chose few words

If today I’m called after this Great Man, do I reflect his character?

Do I grumble about my struggles or say May your will be done?

Do my actions speak volumes or my words make a jarring noise?

Have I recognized my purpose in life is to fulfill his will?
