Who Wants To Lead?

JULY 30, 2020


DAILY PROVERBS:

Proverbs 19:1-4 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth. The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD. Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.


OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

  It seems harder and harder these days to find anyone with any real desire to lead among qualified people. Most people do not want to have to make the hard decisions. They seem content to be told what to do, and when to do it. There are very few people who will step up and take the lead.

    Part of the reason for this vacuum in leadership is a fear of being blamed for something if anything goes wrong. If you are not out there in front leading everyone else, then you will not be blamed when things don’t work out. The truth is that no matter how hard you try; things do not always work out.

    If someone does finally step up to lead and something backfires, they’ll look to the left and find no one there to blame. Look to the right, not a soul there to pin it on either. So then, they often look up and start blaming God. If God is in control of everything, then He must have caused this terrible situation to happen. We all know that makes good sense, right? So, we wonder, “If it’s God’s fault, why are people upset with me?”

    Well, as good as that may sound, it is not always true. God allows us from time to time to make mistakes and we are supposed to learn from them. In our verses today, it says the  “foolishness of man” perverts his way. That simply means he has gotten himself into a predicament. He caused his own problems. It was his fault. However, the predicament and problem are not the reason he is referred to as the foolish man. He is foolish because he tries to blame God.

     
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

    Let’s not run from responsibility just so there’s no one to blame. Sometimes the lesson we need to learn is humility. Simply acknowledge that you are just like the rest of us, not perfect. Ask for God’s forgiveness and others if necessary and move on. You will get farther with God’s blessings than you will by blaming Him for your mistakes. Remember, God also rewards those who follow His lead, and commit to lead others.
