Be a Servant Leader

Philippians 2:3 – “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.”  We all want to be the best, don’t we? There’s a competitive streak in each of us that drives us to be better than our peers. Whether it’s a kid in […]

Better than Life
