“Please let me know!” In the book, What Did Jesus Ask?, the question Jesus asks in Luke 6:30, “Can the blind lead the blind?” reveals, yes. To me, as a follower of Christ, my responsibility is to love others as Christ loves me, ultimately pointing others to Him. Especially, as a follower of Christ and in any leadership position.
Are you a leader? We all are, and we all have a leader and our behaviors and attitudes point directly to how well we know our leader. Who do you follow? Do you have more than one leader? These are the questions that lead to our wholeness. Who is your leader? When we examine our hearts and we truly see ourselves in who God says we are and who you say your Leader is, we realize just how precious these truths are.
Eugene Cho, Senior pastor of Quest Church in Seattle, covers this question in the book I mentioned. She warns us of those in power and authority, about how it is so critical for us to analyze our leadership in where it is that we are leading people to. Are we leading them to Jesus that proclaims, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”? As a leader in my home, in my community, and on this planet, constructive criticism is welcomed for it helps me better lead those whom are witnesses to my attitude and behavior. Being humbly curious always, rather than defensive. For without your encouragement, leading blindly is not where my heart is. In this very exchange, grace and truth stem from a most loving place. Just as Jesus once asked, “Can the blind lead the blind?” The answer is in the question. Out of curiosity, what have you discovered by asking yourself the question?
