What is a Leader?

 A little ditty from my morning reading about COMMITMENT:

Stella Dubiel 2015“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of THIS world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to TEST and APPROVE what God’s will is – his GOOD, pleasing and PERFECT will.”
– ROMANS 12:2

It is a challenging test of character NOT to conform to the pattern of THIS world isn’t it?

People look at you funny when you do things that interrupt their pattern…and people sometimes react unfavorably when you interrupt the pattern of THIS world.

But have you also noticed WE are:

Drawn to…
Inspired by…

And LEAD by…

the very people who had the courage of character to NO LONGER CONFORM!

They are the ones we follow, because they are the ones WHO LEAD.

Until you are ready to LEAD, be sure to follow the people worth following.

GREAT leaders are measured by the CALIBER and CHARACTER of the leaders they help inspire, not by how many followers they have.
