LEADING: it isn't easy

Leading is not a position where we are to be praised or to expect people to automatically look up to us.  A leader is the servant in the group who knowingly and willingly does what it takes. 

You've been the servant many times.  I'd like to encourage you to circle your leading in prayer as I believe God is going to take you to the next level. 

The next level includes holiness. That's personal holiness at first beginning inside you, inside your family and extending out.  That includes the growth of how we lead.  I'm talking about leading and loving people in greater ways.  Be praying and watching to see who God bring to you to serve.

I close by giving you some verses I've circled in prayer.  Read slow.  Pray through each.  Ask God as I have to identify the places you are good and the places you need to grow. 

"But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.""
