Its In Serving That We Lead!
An old legend … of a monastery in France‚ well-known throughout Europe because of the extraordinary leadership of a man known only as Brother Leo.
Several monks began a pilgrimage to visit Brother Leo to learn from him. Almost immediately the monks began to bicker as to who should do various chores.
On the third day they met another monk who was also going to the monastery and he joined their party. This monk never complained or shirked a duty‚ and whenever the others would fight over a chore‚ he would gracefully volunteer and simply do it himself.
By the last day the other monks were following his example‚ and they worked together smoothly.
When they reached the monastery and asked to see Brother Leo‚ the man who greeted them laughed. ‘But our brother is among you!’ And he pointed to the fellow who had joined them late in the trip.
It’s in serving that you lead!
How May I serve you?
