Jesus pointed out of the folly of those who call Him Lord but do not follow His commands. It isn’t that putting Jesus’ words into practice is necessarily easy. He says we need to dig deep and take time to build a solid foundation. It takes time and intentionality to learn to lead like Jesus. But the results are worth it!
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”—Luke 6:46-48
Prayer: Father, show us the leadership principles we need to put into practice today so that we can lead like Jesus, in whose name we pray, amen.
