While the whole world urges us to rise up and be a leader, to be independent ~ be the one to machete your way through the jungle of life, be a man of strength, a strong woman, a confident path-setting teen, the entire response to the Bible can be summarized in two simple words. Jesus says, “Follow Me.”
Leadership is an important topic, but the truth ~ the depth of life is defined more by what and who you choose to follow. Everyone follows something. The woman in the car on the rainy night was kept safe by following closely the car in front of her, but she was taken in the wrong direction. One of my dream books to write someday has the working title of “Followership.” Carefully hoosing who to follow and how to be a good follower.
