The real reason you lead

Mark 10:45 - For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

You can do it to have power.
You can do it to remain cool.
You can do it to "feel young."
You can do it for the prestige.
You can do it because "that's the thing people your age do."

There are a lot of reasons to become a leader, especially with young people, at church.

But, the real reason - which should be the focus when making the ask and the one which closer reflects Christ - is to serve God and others.

It's to put the interests of others first, no matter if it means giving a kid the win or providing extra support during their season of need.

And, while this is far less glamorous, it's also far more accurate and far, far, more fulfilling.
