I know I need to follow. But I’m a leader, not a follower. Even if I am a follower, I shrink from that label.  Discipline, self-effacement, humility and self-knowledge, following in Christ’s footsteps, is just plain hard work. I don’t have time. I am too tired. Yet, my spirit calls out again and again. This is what I really need. And besides, in the following, I am never alone. We follow together.
