Strong leaders should submit their rights for the sake of oneness. This kind of sacrifice fosters peace, joy, and righteousness.
In no other area of your life will you receive such a large and immediate impact as when you apply the principles of servant leadership. It’s not slow, like other aspects of the Christian life. You serve the Lord now, and after you die, He’ll call you faithful. You serve your wife in the bedroom, and–POW!–you’ll receive gratification of the highest degree.
Let us therefore make every effort to do what
leads to peace and to mutual edification.
