Crossroads is a classic written by Robert Johnson and performed by numerous artists.
Several have tried to explain the meaning of this song. The most revealing involves Johnson’s struggle with loneliness, especially connected to the desperation of finding his way home from an unfamiliar place.
Leadership can certainly be a lonely place and it can also take us into unfamiliar places where we desperately seek our way home.
The result brings us to a crossroads, where we question our leadership. We face challenging decisions.
Spiritually, we constantly face crossroads. The decisions we make in those moments determine salvation or condemnation. Our leadership must serve to help others at the crossroads make the right decisions and find their way home.
