Topic: Don’t just be a sign post!
Scripture: Acts 1:1
“In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to DO and to TEACH”.
I think one of the easiest things you can become is a sign post.
You know why?
This is because you just decorate yourself well enough to attract your target group. when you get the attention, all you do is stay at that place and just speak whiles you watch your words being acted upon by others.
That is why I see counseling to be an easy job ’cause you do theory while your clients do the difficult bit which is the practicals.
Being a just a sign post is convenient but must it be just that?
This post goes out most especially to leaders.
Don’t just be a giant sign post always telling your members what to do and after that eat and sleep.
One significant thing of the leadership of Jesus was that Even though He was and is the word, He always practiced before teaching others, as humans as we are, we learn faster when we see people do things instead of them saying, after all actions they say speaks louder than words.
So those of you who have been sign posts for a long period now ain’t you tired? Just staying at the same position whiles the people you direct are making it ahead of you. Don’t you wanna move too?
Would you develop yourself also? Will you do some renovation? This is necessary because once the inscriptions you have on the post is gone, no one will look at you for directions anymore and you will become useless, even to yourself.
let everything you give out make an impact on your life too.
Thank you Lord, for this day and the gift of life. Please forgive my sins even as I forgive those who sin against me. Lord help me to follow your example by being the word I preach, that at the end people will look at me and have a change of heart even without speaking, thank you for hearing me in Jesus name, amen.
