The many who enjoy a working knowledge of the Bible often forget a glaring truth within the Bible. What is it that we forget? First, think about this statement from General John Pershing, ranked as General of the Armies of the United States. This was/is the highest possible rank and was held only by George Washington and himself. When one of two men who hold this rank speaks, it might be wise to listen.
“A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.” John J Pershing.
This statement by a premiere leader of Christendom takes away much of my griping, as well as that of many of my peers. That the church at large and locally is crying for people with outstanding leadership abilities is well documented. But to use this apparent lack for excuse will not fly in light of the example of the people Christ chose to lead.
In harmony with 1Corinthians 1:25-29, used by Paul to point out that God, for the most part, ignored the attributes, accomplishments, birth etc. to call and equip those whom the national religious leaders called ignorant and unlearned men to carry the gospel to the world. We, who labor in Christ’s vineyard, must above all things be faithful and seek the Lord’s teaching and His imparted ability.
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;”
