There are many leaders in the church today who spend an awful amount of time reminding the people of their authority; reminding the people of the great sacrifices "your elders" make; reminding the people of how hard-working and difficult their task is.
I'm reminded of another teacher and leader of the flock who voiced some of these same concerns to his people as well:

Quotes from a famous leader of the flock
"Leadership is primary and decisive.
Lord God, let us never hesitate or play the coward.
Even today I am not ashamed to say that, overpowered by stormy enthusiasm, I fell down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time.
In these three decades, only love for my people and loyalty to my people have guided me in all my thoughts, actions, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions, such as no mortal has yet had to face. I have exhausted my time, my working energy, and my health in these three decades. I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator."
A tremendous example of sacrifice!
Many decades of service, "all for the love of his people."
A great model to look to and strive to equal or even excel!
