No Judgments, Just Jesus

Ordinary Time 21 – Abuses of Power: Leading Christ’s Way (Matthew 23:1-12)

Jesus warns of the “dark side” of leadership. Leaders who do not practice what they preach, are merciless toward others, flaunt their piety, and crave recognition, honor, and superior standing find themselves at odds with God’s kingdom. Like Jesus, the greatest leader shall be the humble servant.
