Have you ever considered what it would be like to trade places with someone else? After all, it would seem others have it so much better than we do.
I grew up hearing “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” Is it really?
What do others have better than we do? Financial success? Academic achievement?
What is it we see in others that makes it worth trading places with them?
The Psalmist questioned a similar thought when considering the prosperity of the wicked. How hard it is to only have a view of the surface, to see the physical and temporal.
If our view of leadership is limited to only what we can accumulate or accomplish in this life, we have misunderstood where the treasure really lies.
If our view of leadership is confined to what others think or say about us, then we have lost sight of the value of this God given role.
It is time for us to lay aside the influence and temptation of the materialistic world surrounding us and recognize the urgency of the spiritual need of all. Think Souls!
