Being The Example
Yesterday we opened our discussion about leadership. We said that true leadership begins with being a servant. If that is the case, how do you begin training your child to grow up to be a leader rather than a follower?
First we need to decide that this is one of the most significant things that a parent can teach. Secondly, we need to realize that even leaders are followers. They are just following the right thing. They are ultimately following God. Leaders need to be nurtured in their relationship with God. Teach your children to love God. They will become men and women who know where to go for direction and won’t conform to the culture around them. (Romans 12:1-2) For more on nurturing your child’s relationship with God check out our series on it by clicking here.
