Who will lead?
“I don’t want to be accused of being on a pedestal, so pick somebody else.”
But what is to be done with all the empty pedestals? Someone is going claim them, and who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool?
“I’m too busy/tired/inexperienced/incapable to lead.”
All the better when it’s God’s power you’re relying on and not your own. God qualifies the called, not the other way around. Remember Moses? (Exodus 4:10-11)
“And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.” (Ezekiel 22:30, ESV)
“And do you seek great things for yourself? Seek them not, for behold, I am bringing disaster upon all flesh, declares the Lord. But I will give you your life as a prize of war in all places to which you may go.”” (Jeremiah 45:5, ESV)
