1 cor 4:1-4

Don't imagine us leaders to be something we aren't. We are servants of Christ, not his masters. We are guides into God's most sublime secrets, not security guards posted to protect them. The requirements for a good guide are reliability and accurate knowledge. It matters very little to me what you think of me, even less where I rank in popular opinion. I don't even rank myself. Comparisons in these matters are pointless. I'm not aware of anything that would disqualify me from being a good guide for you, but that doesn't mean much. The Master makes that judgment.
"We are to be guides, not security guards. We are to invite others into the kingdom, not to keep them outside the mystery of God. We are charged to be reliable guides with accurate knowledge. Let's be certain to pause at the openings God has made for us and if necessary reach back so that others do not fall behind." - Lisa Bevere, Lioness Arising
