Follow the Leader

follow-the-leader-1-638There are a lot of tough things that can be said about leadership.
Some leaders have proven they can’t be trusted. Some leaders have proven they won’t lead if it’s hard. Some leaders give up far too quickly. Some leaders have the wrong motives. Some even victimize their followers.
Rest assured, they will give an account to God directly for their actions. And He will handle them in eternity.
But, don’t forget, when a leader proves reliable, trustworthy, committed, educated, hardworking and loving… you need to follow them. Don’t be difficult to lead when you have a good leader assigned by God to you.
Check out what God said through the writer of Hebrews.
Hebrews 13:17
Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
