Led To Lead

JUNE 10, 2020


DAILY PROVERBS:

Proverbs 14:27-29 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince. He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.


OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

     Leadership can be lonely. People assume because leaders have a number of people who follow them, and they always appear to have someone around them, that there is no possible way for them to ever become lonely.

     However, the truth of the matter is that if a leader is a true leader indeed, he or she will always be out in front of the people, carving a path for them to follow. Leaders are often walking on dangerous ground while others are waiting to see if it’s safe. They are regularly criticized by those who follow, and also by those who will not follow, for the moves, and decisions they make. Leading is lonely. Nevertheless, it’s the only thing a true leader can do, as they can see no other path in life.

     In the multitude of people who are led correctly, there is honor. Without people, leaders are no longer leaders; they are just another person on a hike. However, leaders who lead incorrectly often leave few, or angry followers for any leaders who may come after them. Thereby making leading difficult.

     So how can you lead, and know you are leading correctly? What is it that gives a leader confidence to take a group of people into uncharted areas of their life? Verse 27 answers this question. Respect, and reverence for God, and our Lord Jesus Christ is; “a fountain of life.” Leading people to Christ, and guiding them into a greater walk with Him is always safe. As the verse says it will help them, “to depart from the snares of death.” Everything else is simply a gamble.


THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

     Everyone is a leader, like it or not. Someone is following you in the path you are walking. The question then is, where are you leading them? It’s also true you are leading them either closer to God, or farther away from Him. We should all pray; “Oh God, be my guide. Holy Spirit, guard my path. Jesus, be my life. Amen.”
