Who We Follow Is How We Will Lead

I believe Jesus is the greatest leader of all time. He was not religious. He abhorred how the religious leaders oppressed and took from the people.
 
But, he never cursed Caesar. Nor did he ever identify himself with one faction or the other of Caesar's government.
 
He never dreamed of overthrowing Rome via insurrection as some of his disciples wanted and thought he should.
 
The empire of Rome was nothing in light of the Kingdom of God. And his kingdom, he said, is not of this world. He kept the main thing the main thing.
 
He didn't sell out to Satan in the wilderness when he tempted him with power and riches if he bowed down and worshipped him.
 
No, he maintained his identity. Stayed with and carried out his purpose and today, hundreds of millions still follow this great leader.
 
No one even remembers the names of those who sold out to Caesar to gain power in the name of religion. Nor will they remember those who today have done the same.
 
If you are a leader, study the ways of this master leader. This master strategist. This master planner.
 
In the end, we will be measured not by how well we towed a party line or platform, but by how true we were to whom we claimed to have followed.
 
The ways of the Lamb are nothing like the ways and are far above and superior to the ways of the donkey and elephant.
 
Jesus led with his life. As his followers, so must we lead with ours.
