Could You Really Say This?

It seems as if everyone wants to be a leader in some realm or another. Remember a leader is simply someone who leads others. I was reading a little this morning and some of Paul's words really jumped out at me. In Philippians 3:17 he says, "My friends, I want you to follow my example and learn from others who closely follow the example we set for you." I've already said that a lot of people want to be leaders, but when you think about it, do you really want to follow their lifestyle? Paul is essentially saying to people, do the things you see me doing and live the way I live my life. Unfortunately, many people would be foolish to tell others to follow the life they live. If things in your life aren't right, why in the world would you want others to do the same as they follow you? One of the most important things that people can do when it comes to leadership preparation is leading themselves well. If you can't lead your own life well, how do you expect to lead others? Although many have tried to do lead others with things in their life out of order, most of the time it ends with failure and can deliver a devastating blow to others. If your goal is to be a leader and want others to follow you, start by leading yourself well and having a life that others could follow. Just like Paul, we should be able to tell others to follow our life as a pattern for theirs, and we can start today by leading our own life well :)
