Morals of the Clone Wars 2.16: Cat and Mouse

Moral: “A wise leader knows when to follow.”

If we follow Jesus, we must acknowledge Him as the ultimate leader. No one has been able to create a movement like he has in history. Granted, there are plenty of blemishes on the historical record of Christianity. All too often, those occur when leaders lead from their own wills instead of following Christ.

Jesus reminded us that he “came not to be served but to serve” (Matthew 20:28). Philippians 2 tells us that the way of Jesus is the way of humility and serving others. Sometimes we serve by leading. Sometimes we let ourselves get in the way, and we need to remember that we follow Christ.

I’ve encountered too many church leaders who like the power and prestige of leading. I’ve seen too many churches suffer because of someone seeking their own goals. Christ beckons us to follow–and let Him lead. Let’s get back to that.
