A few days ago, I posted on “Leaders and Servants“. I suggested that Jesus wanted us to recognize the people who were serving and follow them. At the beginning of that post, I linked to grace’s series on “Leadership”.
In her latest post, “Leadership – Part 4“, she asks the following question: “What degree of service would we still participate in if there were no acknowledgment or recognition of our role?”
In a comment, I responded to her question as follows: “If we are not willing to serve without title, position, acknowledgment, recognition, or role, then we are NOT serving.”
I wanted to place grace’s question and my answer here for my readers to consider and to respond to. How would you respond to grace’s question? Is it really service if we would not do the same thing without acknowledgment or recognition? What would you stop doing if you no longer had the same position, role, office, title, etc.?
