Follow the leader

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matt. 9:36

We may not always like being led but we need leadership because confusion results when each of us, or any one of us within a group, defaults to selfishness. As a leader Jesus always has our best interests at heart.  Jesus’ compassionate yet confident leadership style is the one to copy.

Lord, when it falls to me to lead, fill me with Your compassion and confidence.
