Leadership I

Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way. (General George Patton, WW II leader)

If you’ve seen the movie, Patton, you can well imagine him bark the order, “get out of my way.” However, even though Patton didn’t stand for any disobedience from his troops, he was known to disobey the orders of his commanding officers. But the principle of his order is well taken. Good leaders know how to follow and how to lead, and they hate anything that’s in their way.

God’s hand was on the people. . . giving them all one heart to obey the orders of the king and his officials, who were following the word of the Lord. (2 Chronicles 30:12)
