An urgency and an imperative nature is ascribed to the word, lead. Consider the following thoughts.
1) Initiate motion: To lead requires beginning the process. Waiting on someone else to lead often results in nothing getting accomplished.
2) Organize and direct: If there is a priority that exists in the realm of leading, it is the need to organize and direct.
3) Take command: To lead is to take command, not an authoritative dictator style of leading, but assuming responsibility.
Without taking the lead, the unqualified, desperate, misguided, and agenda driven take the lead.
Each thought carries a pressing demand for spiritual leaders to lead.
