This year, I’ve been focusing on one word: Follow.
And here’s what I’ve realized…
- Joshua followed Moses.
- Elisha followed Elijah.
- Peter followed Jesus.
- Timothy followed Paul.
- Every great leader is also a great follower.
I’ve not always been a great follower. Far too often, I’ve been restless rather than patient, choosing immediate results over the best ends. But I’m learning that to be a great leader, we must first be a great follower…of Jesus, and of other leaders.
This week, I’m sharing a series of blog posts about my journey to become a better follower, on my way to being a better leader.
Remember John 3:30, “He must become greater; I must become less.” It doesn’t matter how well you lead anyone, unless you’re best known for how you’re following Jesus.
