Thought of the Day !!

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord's work.  They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance.
                                                        1 Thessalonians 5:12 (NLT)

While it might be true that not all are called to be pastors, missionaries, or to have specific roles of leadership in the church (teacher, deacon, lay leader, etc.).  It is also true that all of us are spiritual leaders.  We will all lead someone.  It might be a child that looks up to you.  It could be a new Christian that sees you as someone who's attended church all your life.  It might even be someone outside the church that is trying to determine if Christianity if for them or not.  Whether we like it or not we will lead by our words, our actions…our lives.

The question is, will we lead in the ways of Christ or the ways of the world.  Paul writes to the Corinthian church, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ”.  As we follow the example of Christ, we will lead people in the right direction.  If we follow the example of the world, we will lead in the wrong direction.

In which direction will you lead people today?

In the love of Christ,
