I’m a leader, you’re a leader, and they are leaders too. Ah you say, “Not me. I am at the bottom of the heap, accountable to everyone, leader of none. Not so. We are all leading someone somewhere and we hope it is just not astray.
Parents lead children through toilet training, driver’s education and college. Teachers lead students to passing grades. Friends and family share Christ with other friends and family. Neighbours invite other neighbours to church. Pastors lead their congregations toward holiness. And God is eager to lead us all.
Yes, You are my Rock and my Fortress; therefore for Your name’s sake lead me and guide me. (Psalm 31:3, AMP)
Of course, that implies that we will follow willingly.
Prayer – Lord, we are only too willing to follow our own paths into destruction. Make us willing to be willing to follow you, Lord. Thanks. Amen
