The answer to this question is given in the Old Testament. Two times in the book of Judges, the Bible points out that when there was no leadership, “every man did what was right in his own eyes.”
Looking around at the world today would seem to indicate that while there are leaders in different venues, far too many people are living as though there is no leadership.
While leadership is not what it should be, and this is true in almost every venue, it must not be this way for our influence as Christians.
Too many only reflect the leadership they see, and it is often a negative, abusive, manipulative, and corrupt form of leading.
Christians, however, are not following the leadership seen in an example of the human kind. We are following the leadership of the almighty God who came in the form of human flesh, lived a life of humble service, and gave His life as a sacrifice for all.
As we measure up the example of our life before others, perhaps leading with such intent will instill in others the hope of a better tomorrow.
