What's in a Name?

"Following the Leader" came from something I say to my children all the time. It goes like this...

"Why are you in front of me when you don't know where we are going?" as they walk so slowly that I am stepping on them, because... they don't know where to go.

Or they might take off ahead excitedly, and then continuously look back to make sure I am behind them, asking "Are we going in the right direction?!"

I usually reply in a calm and loving way, patiently saying, "You must folloooww whoever knooowwsss where to go!"

My confession...This is such a picture of what I end up doing in my life with my Savior. I too will get in front of Him and try to lead. He is so faithful to lovingly remind me "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me." Mk 8:34 Our prayer is that we will be faithful to follow.

Come back and see us! I'll try to be witty, but... I'm not promising anything. ;~)
