Loyalty and Leadership
People in leadership, whether it is by their example or their position, have people who are follow them. That means leaders have a moral obligation to the people they are leading. As a Christian leader I understand that obligation is to show those following me the way to life.
Peter wrote; “For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.” (1 Peter 1:18-19; NLT; italics are mine)
Peter reminds us that the life we receive from the world is an empty life. The sad reality is that this life is the only life most people know. That is why I am obligated to show, through teaching and by example, that there is a better way to live life.
