Following the crowd, the latest fad or trend, or jumping on the bandwagon, are familiar phrases.
Is this what our leadership is all about? Do we simply want to fit in with what appears to be the latest and greatest?
We need leaders who stand out. We need leadership who lift up the Light of the world. Such leadership stands out in a world of darkness.
Why is it so important to stand out when it seems easier to follow the crowd?
Following the majority can have severe and eternal consequences. Jesus teaches this principle in the Sermon on the Mount.
Our path is a matter of choice. The choice we make influences others. If it helps others get to heaven, then standing out in or from the crowd is worth it.
