Leadership is active. It may seem silly, but leaders are suppose to lead. Leadership is action-oriented.
Think William Wallace in the 1995 movie Braveheart. Think Jesus riding into to Jerusalem knowing the violence awaiting Him. Think General George Washington crossing the Delaware River to surprise the British. Think Churchill saying, "We will never give in" while Germany was bombing Great Britain back to the Stone Age during WWII.
People want leaders who live out conviction, passion and a clear message. Leaders need to stand for something. Where are our leaders today? Who are they really fighting for?
Parents are the real leaders of any society. Being a parent is the most important leadership position bestowed to any individual.
How are you impacting the leaders of tomorrow? How are you leading your child to develop into the person he or she is created to be? How are you teaching your child to live out faith, conviction, integrity and all the values necessary to live a successful, honorable life?
He or she will be a leader one day...how he or she leads depends largely on how our children see us lead.
Rise Up and lead well.
