    Who’s Leading You?

    Dear leader, who’s leading you? I know it’s not a question that you’re asked often. You’re more than likely used to hearing about how you’re leading others.

You cannot lead if you have no clue how to be led. This is especially the case for Christian leaders. Why? Let’s consider who a Christian leader is. What is it that makes one a Christian leader?

As someone who works on my time, as it were, I’ve come to value the need to respect my work; to accord it due honour knowing that I’m not even working as unto me but as unto God.
