Today this picture popped up on my Facebook memory timeline. This picture was taken right after I baptized Tommy Tate. What a joyful occasion! It’s moments like these that I will remember for the rest of my life.

A great Proverbs bible study is found in chapter 6 verses 6-11. It reads as follows:
You lazy fool, look at an ant. Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two. Nobody has to tell it what to do. All summer it stores up food; at harvest it stockpiles provisions. So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing? How long before you get out of bed? A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next? Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, poverty your permanent house guest!
Everybody should study ants and their philosophy—it’s simple, but it’s powerful! When was the last time you saw ants reach an obstacle and give up with their heads down and head back to the ant hole to relax? Never. Continue reading “Need Inspiration? Look To The Ant”

When times are tough, uncertainty is high, and chaos threatens to overwhelm everyone, followers need a clear picture from their leaders the most. The living picture they see in their leader produces energy, passion, and motivation to keep going. As you strive to improve as an example to your followers, remember these things:
- Followers are always watching what you do. Just as children watch their parents and emulate their behavior, so do employees watching their bosses. People do what people see.
- It is easier to teach what is right, than to do what is right. Norman Vincent Peale stated, “Nothing is more confusing than people who give good advice, but set a bad example.” In addition, nothing is more convincing than people who give good advice and set a good example!
- We should work on changing ourselves before trying to improve others. A great danger in good leadership is the temptation to try to change others without first making changes to yourself.
- The most valuable gift a leader can give is being a good example. Leadership is more caught than taught! How does one “catch” leadership? By watching good leaders in action!
WHAT LIVING PICTURE ARE YOU GIVING YOUR FOLLOWERS?
Success can bring many things: power, privilege, fame, wealth. How we use those options reveals our character. Wealthy people can use their resources to benefit others or only themselves. Famous people can use their notoriety to model good character or to selfishly serve themselves. Leaders can make decisions that affect others positively or negatively. It is up to them.
At the heart of the matter is whether people desire to use their power to put others in their place or to put themselves in others’ place. George Washington Carver made a great observation: “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.” Our treatment of others results from our perspective of them!
Put yourself in someone else’s place before leading him or her.
