What characteristics do you look for in a leader? Most of us look for someone we can trust. Jesus fits that description. He proved His trustworthiness throughout His life: calling His followers into relationship, equipping, forgiving, and empowering them, and eventually giving His life for them. He lived by His values, even when it cost Him His reputation and His life. Are you a leader that others can trust?
If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.—John 14:7
Prayer: Jesus, I trust You with my present and my future. I trust You to be my leader in the present. I trust that as You work in me You can make me a leader that others will be able to trust. I want to lead like You did, bringing value to those around me, and living by my values. I pray in Your name, Amen.
