It's lonely at the top!

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”—John 14:16

I am so amazed at the barrage of criticisms leveled at our leaders. It starts with political leaders, but includes sports coaches, CEOs, pastors, and nearly all levels of leadership. It is so easy to judge and critique others actions, decisions, or leadership style. It is "normal" to play Monday morning quarterback with politics, schools, businesses, and ministries. It saddens me that Christians are some of the worst critics. 


Stop judging! Start praying, support and serve our leadership  in this country and those that lead us through our daily lives. Support your boss! Support your church leadership, support your company. Leave the judgment and constant attacks to someone else. Encourage them and help them be successful in any way you can. Hoping for their failure and fighting their leadership is not good for anyone. 

Dear Lord, I pray for our leaders. I pray for our president and his cabinet, that they would be filled with your wisdom and compassion for the people of this country. I pray for the leadership of my school that their heart for kids would direct all of their decisions. I pray for my church and its pastor. Keep them safe and focused on your message. I love you Lord and know you have not called me to judge others but to love them with all my heart. I praise you for this wonderful life and the amazing day you have in store for me this day. Amen!
