Where do followers go when experiencing tragedies in life?
Where should they go when daily life is met with difficult challenges?
Where would leaders have them go when needs outweigh the balances of monetary ability?
Leaders will always be faced with questions regarding those who follow their leadership. This is especially true when thinking about spiritual leaders.
Jesus asked the apostles a question as people began to walk away and leave when His teaching became difficult for them to understand. He wanted to know if the apostles were going away also, to which Peter responded, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (Jn. 6:68).
Followers have no where else to go other than leadership. When others turn to leaders, will they receive words of eternal life? Will they learn what to do to help them through life and gain eternity?
Where else can we go if not to spiritual leaders who desire only to make sure heaven is the goal, the word of God is the guide, the Savior is the way, and earthly leaders are trustworthy to provide the right guidance.
