Are you a leader? How about you? Are you humble enough like a child? Are you trust God like a child? Read this short devotion as a leader who lead others…..Isaiah 11:6
Children provide something that adults lost long ago: innocence. They aren’t tarnished by the criticisms of the world. They delight in the simple things and possess a peace that we can only dream about. They also trust wholeheartedly that they are cared for and loved. There is no doubt. Children are important to God. In Matthew 18:3 we read: “[Jesus] said, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.'” In order to enter the kingdom, a person needs to be like a child–pure, innocent, humble, and trusting.
Take a look at your life. Are you like a little child? Do you humbly trust God for your every need? Are you in a leadership role? How do you lead? Do you lead trusting that people are able to handle tasks? Are you humble enough to admit when you are wrong? Humility is one of the toughest aspects of good leadership. It’s hard to admit when we don’t know something–we don’t want people to think less of us. God tells us to put those fears behind and trust him. Only a true leader will emerge, if she becomes like a child and allows God to use her.
