Have you ever seen the movie Kindergarten Cop? It is really funny to watch Arnold Schwarzeneggger get eaten alive by a bunch of five year olds. Kids are alot smarter than we give them credit. Ask any subsitiute teacher that has gone into a classroom for the first time. You can remember looking back the teachers that made you walk the line or the ones that couldn’t keep you in line. Carrying authority is a big deal. Not everyone has leadership qualities. If you desire to be more of a leader ask God to help you. Our confidence should be in the Lord.
Our leadership is noticeable with our own children. Do you children respect you? Do they listen when you instruct them? In the workplace, are you the one that always get left with the not so pleasant tasks? God wants us to be humble and have a servants attitude when it comes to loving and caring for people, but not to be doormats. There is a difference.
Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other.
1 Corinthians 4:6
