STOP AND THINK – Men don’t follow titles, they follow courage. (William Wallace, 13th-14th century leader for Scottish independence)
Was Wallace right? Is this true today? Are we inclined to evaluate people on the basis of title or position rather than their demonstrated leadership? Do we consider wealth, fame in the entertainment or sports industries, or political achievement of greater value than courage as we decide who should lead us? Let’s look for leaders whose character compels us to follow.
Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed. (Joshua 1:9)
