Perhaps you have heard this phrase or one similar, “Well, if it were up to me, I would _____________” (you fill in the blank)
Well, what would we really do if it were up to you or me?
Would we treat our spouse differently? Would we raise our children differently? Would we give more consideration to our influence on co-workers, neighbors and friends?
Generally, this phrase is used in situations where we have no control or influence. But, what about the areas we do have control and influence? It is up to us. So, what are we doing?
Be a leader! Lead your family to heaven. Lead your co-workers, neighbors and friends to Christ. Lead a Bible class. Lead in worship. For the sake of the future, lead!! The bottom line? It is all up to you and me. Don’t just talk about it. Do something about it, because we can!
