Thought for today

by Sarah Luna

The zeal for leadership often leads to division.

I overheard this today at a conference, and it struck me because it affirmed my idea that leading for the sake of leading or leading with no higher purpose can be detrimental.

So often we are encouraged to lead, but when are we ever taught how to be good followers? When are we taught how to encourage and edify others? Or how to surrender to a superior idea with grace?
