Follow to Lead
“After a long absence, the master of those three servants came back and settled up with them. The one given five thousand dollars showed him how he had doubled his investment. His master commended him: ‘Good work! You did your job well. From now on be my partner.”
Matthew 25:21 (MSG)
Followership is the beginning of leadership; it is not a permanent condition, it is transitory. Leadership is the end product of good followership. There is no one that will follow the way they should that would not end a leader. When you have a problem following, you will have a problem leading. To lead well today, you ought to have followed well, yesterday. Leadership capacity is transferred as you follow, depending on the leader you are following.
From today’s scripture, the servant was promoted from the level of followership to leadership in the order of his master, because he followed well. You can’t lead well if you don’t follow well. The first thing Paul did when he picked Timothy was circumcised him, which is the cutting of excess flesh; there are things covering your rising, it is in following they are cut; it is in following you are instructed; it is in following you learn patience and develop maturity. Are you a follower? Don’t be discouraged following even when discouraging events occur; it is not a curse to follow; it is the highway to effective leadership.
Dear LORD, like Your disciples were faithful in following while You were on earth, help me to follow my leaders with humility in my heart and an open mind to receive the knowledge their leadership transmits; thank You LORD, in Jesus’ Name!
KEEP IN MIND
When you have a problem following, you will have a problem leading.
