STOP AND THINK – We can command only if we know how to obey. We can lead only if we know how to follow. (Jean Vanier, Canadian philosopher and writer)
Some young people want to rush into significant roles of leadership without going through training or pursuing experience in their chosen field. But, there are prerequisites for taking posts of high responsibility. Demonstrated loyalty and obedience, following instructions well, having wide experience from which to learn—there are no shortcuts to leadership.
Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. (Psalm 119:33)
