I read this Proverb in The Message translation this morning:
"The mark of a good leader is loyal followers;
leadership is nothing without a following." (Proverbs 14:28)
Any youth worker--from weekly volunteer to full-time to occasional helper--is rightly called a leader. With that in mind, for us to ask ourselves and reflect on this morning:
*Am I a good leader to the youth among whom I minister?
*Do they follow me and my example?
*Inasmuch as they follow me, do I reflect God's image and point them to Jesus, who is the true leader for us to follow?
Food for thought on this Thursday.
