Have you been called into a position of leadership? Remember that leaders are also followers, and teachers are also students. I encountered a Centurion who understood this when he told me that he was a man under authority rather than telling me how many men he had under him. If this principle is true in the realms of the military, commerce, and academics, then how much more is it true in my body in which each of my children from the least to the greatest has an individual direct relationship with me? It is gracious for those who are called to lead to emphasize the equality of all believers.
I’ll be out of town for a few days and resume messages later.
