"Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve."

-Martin Luther King Jr.

As Dr. King said, everyone can be great. Everyone can be great because we can all serve. “You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…You only need a heart full of grace,” to serve. “A soul generated by love.”

 

Humility, our third pillar, and Servanthood are the “Stockton & Malone” of character traits. They are great teammates and work really well together. Our greatest leaders have always served mankind. Martin Luther King marched for equality and went to jail. Mother Teresa fed the poor and had compassion for the sick. Jesus healed the crippled and washed the feet of his disciples.

 

Titan alum, Luke Sellers, got injured in football and was unable to play basketball his senior year. And yet, he still attended every practice and all of our games. Several practices he would sweep the floor without ever being asked to do so. Why is this small act so significant? Simple. It reflects a huge heart! He was putting his love for his team on display by his actions.

 

Luke was a great teammate. You might say Luke attached a higher price tag to his teammates than to himself. The likelihood that he will do the same for his family, friends and coworkers throughout his lifetime is ridiculously high. Hire Luke Sellers! 

 

Remember, ego serves itself, but humility serves others.

Questions:

  • Which teammate of yours would wash your feet or go to jail for you?

  • What kind of price tag have you attached to your teammates?

  • Name three ways you can serve your teammates in practice or games.
