Thought of the Day !!

Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave.
                                                     Proverbs 12:24 (NLT)

Some people are born to lead.  Others have leadership thrust upon them.  Or so it is said.  

I believe that God gives the gift of leadership to some in His Church, while others are asked to follow.  Some are gifted to be Sunday School teachers, Pastors, Small Group leaders, Chairs of Committees and so on.  So the question could be asked if we can be leaders if not called by God to some sort of position or vocation.

The answer is yes.  There are also spiritual leaders who lead others, sometimes unknowingly, by their witness and a life lived out in humble service to Christ.  This is evangelism in its most basic form...and often times its most effective.

Think about how you can be a better leader today by leading by example.  Maybe you will plant a seed or harvest what has been planted by someone before you.  God bless us all in our endeavors.

In the love of Christ,
