Leadership is no walk in the park. Why do more not lead? One of the top reasons is because it is difficult. Who would sign up after Paul’s message to the elders at Ephesus, “and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them”?
Would you or I want to lead with this prediction? Yet, we desperately need leaders.
I have heard; “if it were easy everyone would do it.” Well, it is not easy. At the same time, everyone is doing it. We are all leading others. The question is where are we leading them?
We either influence others for good or evil.
We either influence others to build on the rock or sand.
We either influence others to walk in the light or darkness.
We either influence others to be a sheep or a goat.
We either influence others to live for Christ or against Him.
It is one tough job, but it is worth the effort. Leading others to live a better life, sharing in the better promises of Christ, will be worth it all.
