Have you ever played Follow the Leader? I’m sure at some juncture of your life you have. It’s a frustrating game, and if you’re fortunate enough to be the leader you’ll love it, but if you happen to be a follower you will despise both leader and game. It’s generally played in the childhood years. The game is pretty basic, whatever the leader does you have to duplicate. If you are one step, one arm thrashing, one eye-rolling movement out of sync you will find yourself watching the game from the sidelines. The only leader I’ve ever known to win was a boy in my elementary school who dared to pick his nose while leading, needless to say, he won the round.

In the context of Follow the Leader, I’ve always struggled with being a follower. But, come to think of it, I believe most of us could say that about life; we struggle at following.
It’s no secret, but everyone follows someone, even if you are the most independent person in the history of independent people, you are still following someone – yourself!
We were Made for More!  Made to follow God’s example. I hope you’ll join me on Sunday as we look at this important issue of Following the Leader from Ephesians 5:1-20.

Sunday @ 9:30am or 11am in Kentville OR 10:30am in Kingston
