Few leaders lead in our societies today. How many leader's words and actions cannot be forgotten in the world today? We are often carried away by positions and names and we have forgotten what true leadership entails. Many people are least concerned about the integrity of their character and raising the next generation with examples from their failures and success, rather they are consumed with their selfish desires and life. They have forgotten about tomorrow, they only live for today. The swallow up the present and forget to sow seeds for the future. Are these leaders that lead?
We are so much in ignorance of what should be the norm, because leadership has failed. Fathers have stopped leading their sons and mothers, their daughters because of hunt for money, fame and affluence. The world is filled with men and women that are not worthy to be called Fathers and mothers, because they have failed in their responsibility. Are these leaders that lead?
Leadership has fallen from the primary place that it ought to be seen, the family. The fall of the leadership has spread across board, from home to office, to restaurants, to local, state and local governments. We have politicians –executive, legislature and judiciary in leadership positions, who are just figure heads and have failed to drive the process that will birth a country that their sons and daughters can live in, without stealing public funds. Are these leaders that lead?
Leaders that lead are men and women that are full of sense of purpose, vision, direction, discipline, sacrifice and who fears the Lord of all in all that they do. How do we move from where we are to where we desire to be? We must fix leadership in all ramification.
