Examples of Great Servant Leaders

In studying the bible, the most concise history of the world and our existence, it becomes evident that the most amazing example of the Servant Leadership model is the servant leadership of the son of God, Jesus Christ.
Who, even though he was God in the flesh, did not count his equality with God a position to be attained, but gave us the greatest example of leadership in his servitude of the human race.
He emptied himself of all the authority that he held in heaven and became a servant on the earth so that he could understand what those who he would one day rule over experienced on a daily basis. He was the first and greatest undercover servant leader.
He even employed himself in the lowest job position in the Jewish community which was washing the feet of the master's guests.
He did this to show us how to interact with each other in interpersonal and business relationships.
If in our interactions with others we could serve each other then the greatest good of humanity and business would be attained.
