If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church? – 1 Timothy 3:5
Everyone is a leader. A leader is someone who influences others in a particular direction. Everyone leads in some manner or another. When you stand around the water cooler and talk to your friends at work, you’re leading. When you raise your children or your grandchildren, you’re leading. When you go onto Facebook, Twitter, when you write things or blog things, you’re leading. No matter who you are in life, as you encounter, talk with, and engage with other people, you are leading them. It may be inadvertent, it may be unintentional. None the less, if you are ever around, talking with, or in the midst of people, you are leading. You are causing people to go in a particular direction. Some leaders are bad, some leaders are good. Some leaders have a lot of influence, some leaders have a little influence, but no matter who you are, you are leading. What type of a leader will you be?
PRAYER: Dear Lord, please help me to lead in a way that is pleasing to you. Amen.
REFLECTION: What kind of a leader am I currently? What kind of a leader do I want to be?
