Why It’s Important
What we need in our culture today are true leaders. Young men and women who are trained and ready to lead this country, their community, businesses and churches in a way that would honor God. Leaders do not use others to get things done. They are simply people who catch a dream and a vision to complete that dream; because of this passion others want to follow them. Unfortunately, most people don’t understand what it means to be a leader. Leadership is not solely about temperament….it’s about training.
If I am to train up a child in the way that he or she should go, and I know that God wants our children to be leaders, then it stands to reason that I need to know what leaders do and train my child to do that. We need to look at the one who came here to earth to be our greatest example as leader. Jesus told us in Matthew 20:16, “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” He also gave us an example of this in John 13:1, where He washes the disciples feet. As far as Jesus is concerned true leadership all boils down to understanding the concept of serving others.
