Those Closest to You

Those Closest to You

Leading like Jesus encompasses every aspect of our lives, from family and friends to co-workers and colleagues and people in our communities. Regardless of how wide our influence extends, our greatest opportunity to influence others is with those closest to us. Jesus prayerfully chose twelve to pour His life into. Who is part of the small circle of people in your daily life? Name them one by one. Ask the Lord to pour out His Spirit and to multiply your influence in their lives so that they, too, will lead like Jesus.

One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles. —Luke 6:12-13

Prayer: Lord, let me invest wisely and faithfully into those You have given me so that they become men and women who lead to exalt God and carry Your message to the next generation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
