WHERE MANY LEADERS FAIL
“Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.” I Samuel 15:21, 24 NKJV
You need guts to lead any people; and more guts to lead spiritual people!
King Saul was chosen by God, but he would rather submit to his followers than to the One who chose him as King. Leadership is truly service to the people, but your loyalty must be towards your Boss! This is where Adam also failed God as the leader over his home: “Then to Adam He said, “because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘you shall not eat of it’: “cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life.”” Genesis 3:17 NKJV. I don’t trust men who follow their wives’ voice one hundred percent, all in the name of love! You should verify every thing with God before you act upon them, even if your wife or children have sharp prophetic gifts!
God is strict with His rules! He demands accountability from leaders! If you fear your followers more than you fear your Leader, you should not lead! Because, you will end up as a massive failure like King Saul! Be loving… but be firm! Concerning spiritual matters and quality service, let your followers know who the real Boss is!
