Blazing the Trail…

“What trails are we blazing? What paths are we cutting through the brush? And where will we end up from our efforts? But more important than that…have we left a clear path for others to follow, and if they do follow, where will they end up?” Michael Hite

I read this post a few years ago, and immediately thought of how powerful these questions are for leadership.

When we question our leadership, consideration should be given to the followers. Have we really considered where others will end up when they follow our leadership?

The choices are limited to the following and similar ideas:

1) Closer to, or further away from God…

2) More spiritually, or more worldly focused…

3) Stronger, or weaker in faith…

4) Growing, or declining in knowledge of God’s word…

There are many more possibilities, but the point is the same. Our leadership should be important enough to consider the destination followers will reach by following.

Be willing to blaze the type of trail that when others follow they reach heaven. Think Souls!
