We said Monday that true leadership is being a servant. If that is the case most people, especially children, aren’t naturally bent to serve others. In today’s culture we have been trained to think it is all about me, so the concept of servant hood is counter intuitive. We must give our children an opportunity to serve. Service starts in the family and works outward. We need to train our children to serve each other then those around us. Serving others should be part of our DNA as a family.
After giving your child the opportunity to serve we need to make sure that we are taking the time to process the experience with our children. How did it make us feel? (Etc.)
Make sure that we are giving our leaders-in-training many opportunities to serve those around us. Click here to visit our series on training a servant.
