"Only secure people can serve. Insecure people do not like to put themselves in a servant's posture because they think that people are looking down on them or people are going to treat them poorly."
"You cannot give to others what you do not possess yourself. If you want a healthy flock, you as the shepherd leader must get healthy first."

Verse of the Day
John 13: 3-5
"Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him."
