Sometimes a person’s drive will take them where their character cannot hold them. There is reason that rests within the verse, “Oh, how the mighty have fallen.” Those that find themselves in positions of leadership yet remain without that which is needed to lead, will fall. Even if only in the eyes of those that once followed, which is enough because a leader without followers is just someone taking a walk.
You can’t hide a cruel heart. You can’t contain a feigned personality of caring when you don’t. So what is it that’s needed to lead? A heart. A good heart. Unfortunately there are a lot of bad hearts out there. And those bad hearts tend to lead good hearts into organized disarray. Seeking to fulfill the poisoned agenda they preach.
We cannot let ourselves be swept up by sweet words that result in a stomach ache.
I always write these blogs in a way that’s transparent. I’ve always written everything with a pen of a transparency. And lately I feel as though I’ve been seeing some of those few good hearts in the world being influenced by even fewer sour hearts. Good hearts outnumber poor hearts. So this post is written to encourage. En-courage. To put courage into. Courage to stand on your own good heart and to trust your own good heart. You are made to be enough. No matter what you decide to become.
Don’t forget… a lot of people thought Hitler was a good dude when he was in power 🙂 …but he wasn’t. He was bad.
