I recently read this quote by Henri Nouwen (In the Name of Jesus, 1989). I have been asking myself this question, do we follow "people with an ardent desire to dwell in God's presence, to listen to God's voice, to look at God's beauty, to touch God's incarnate Word, and to taste fully God's infinite goodness?"


When you think about the people or leaders that we follow, what characteristics do they have? When choosing who you will follow, what is important to you?


Nouwen gives some helpful priorities as we consider, how we will serve in leadership roles and live our lives as Christians.

He reminds us that it's not just about listening or speaking, there are other senses to consider as well. Think about these actions for a moment, Dwell, Listen Look, Touch, and Taste. 


How do you encounter God with more than just your eyes or ears?


Go into this day knowing that you have been claimed by God. May you see the opportunities to lead and have the humility to follow the leaders who are following the Lord's path.


Prayer for Today

Lord, may we always follow and lead in ways that give you glory. Lead us into life through your ways. In Christ's Name, Amen.
