(Be Inspired To Lead)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 4:12 MSG
“And don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity.”
Many Christians are acquainted with the story of Joseph, who was a slave in the house of Potiphar, yet the Bible says he was a prosperous and effective man. He exhibited leadership qualities which distinguished him from all the other slaves and soon enough, he was put in charge of Potiphar’s whole estate. Your greatness isn’t in the definition of your assignment, but in the quality of your spirit and the excellence of your character.
Let your character speak for itself. As a Christian, you’re a steward of the message of Christ. You’re the one He’s authorised to carry forth His message to the people and teach them the same. This means that responsibility of leadership has been thrust upon you. You’ve been called to lead and the capacity to lead is resident in your spirit. You have the life, nature and character of God in you to do all things.
Wherever you go, let people see your mark as a child of God. You’ve been sent to lead, therefore be that worthy example! Teach those in your home, school, and neighbourhood how to live and do things right through your words, character, love, faith and integrity. Let your life reflect what you say to others.
Dear Father, I thank you for making me a testimony and an example to everyone in my world! Today, through your grace and ability at work in me, I function with such an outstanding proficiency that everyone around me is inspired for excellence in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
