what does it mean to lead?

January 26, 2015

What does it mean to lead? What does it look like to you? So, so much is written about the subject, including this blog, that it gets overwhelming. Let me point you to some ancient, and very current, wisdom on what it means to lead.

 “. . . shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” 1 Peter 5:2-3

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8

In the flood of words about what it means to lead, first seek out God’s Word for the truth of what it means to shepherd His people.
