"The power of leading like Jesus can be poured only into a surrendered heart and can flow only out of a surrendered heart. There is no shortcut around Self that will allow you to lead like Jesus."
I read this quote somewhere recently and I don't know where it's from, but I really like it. God keeps teaching me a lot about pride and humility (can you say "ouch"?) and this quote gets at the heart of the matter for me.
"But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things." -Philippians 3:7-8
