Lead Like Jesus Anyway

Lead Like Jesus Anyway

Life presents challenges to anyone who wants to lead like Jesus. The challenges may come in the form of people, even close companions, who undermine our best efforts. There may be situations that confuse us or cause us to question our commitment to serve in love. We may be discouraged by having taken a step forward, only to find ourselves suddenly two steps behind where we started. In all these circumstances, we have a choice to make, either to succumb to the pressure or to choose to lead like Jesus anyway. How will you choose today?

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.—Proverbs 4:25-26   

 Prayer: Jesus, strengthen our commitment to love, live, and lead like You. Regardless of how others choose to respond, fix our eyes straight ahead. May we respond to Your call and reflect Your example in thought, word, and action. We pray in Your name, amen.
