What does this mean exactly?

"there are those who follow me because they are jackals with sharp teeth and I am their lion."


I totally don't get the jackals and lion part!

plz HELP!

    Jackals often wait until a lion kills a large prey -- and as soon as the lion leaves, the jackals eat the rest of the animal the lion killed.

    In other words, the author says they "they" follow me to reap the rewards of what I have done.
