Most people have scars of some form or nature. These scars can be the result of surgery, an accident, or some foolish activity.
Scars are not only physical; there are emotional, mental, and spiritual scars left for the same reasons.
When we examine these scars, and the nature of them, what do they leave behind?
First, they leave us with a reminder of the cause of the scar. These constant reminders bring to mind exactly what happened to create the scar.
Second, scars remind us of pain. The pain may have been physical, but it could also be pain of an emotional and spiritual nature.
Third, scars show us the incredible wisdom and power of God. This body is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Ps. 139:14).
Fourth, scars serve as a reminder to be cautious about creating future scars.
However, the greatest reminder of scars, when it comes to leadership, involves the scars in the hands and feet of our Savior. The example that left Him with these scars should always be a reminder of the example our leadership is all about.
