I have a rather large segment of my library dedicated to leadership books. They cover everything from team building, to personal leadership, to leading a non-profit organization, to leading a for-profit company. One of the recurring teachings goes something like this:
If you want a picture of your leadership, look at who’s following you.
Do you buy that?
I thought I did, but then I read this:
Later, Levi invited Jesus and His disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus’ followers.)
Maybe these tax collectors and other disreputable sinners were attracted to Jesus because they could tell how much He loved them.
So I have to ask myself, “How many ‘disreputable sinners’ are hanging around me?” Maybe I need to take another look at my heart for the lost.
How about you?
