He who thinks he is leading and has no one following him is only taking a walk. (African proverb)
That’s seems obvious. But author Kenneth J. Brown takes a different view; he says, “Don’t worry about how few are following today, if you are leading the way into tomorrow.” If after a while there is still no one following you, I suspect, that Brown would agree with the African proverb. So, be sure you’re heading in the right direction before you ask others to follow.
So follow the steps of the good, and stay on the paths of the righteous. (Proverbs 2:20)
