Failure to lead begins with a failure to follow

Church Family,

Today in my reading I came across one of the saddest judgements made against Israel. All of chapter 3 and 4 are worth reading to understand more.

Isaiah 3:1-4 For behold, the Lord GOD of hosts
is taking away from Jerusalem and from Judah
support and supply,
all support of bread,
and all support of water;
2the mighty man and the soldier,
the judge and the prophet,
the diviner and the elder,
3the captain of fifty
and the man of rank,
the counselor and the skillful magician
and the expert in charms.
4And I will make boys their princes,
and infants shall rule over them

When a generation refuses to follow God they will force the next unprepared generation to lead. When followship fails in the people of God, God often disciplines them with unprepared/poor leadership. There is a lot more to be learned and said but for times sake let me remind you of this: 1) God never changes, but His people should be changed/transformed by Him every day. 2) Paul mentions that the church shouldn't change certain traditions, preaching, singing, reading your bible, etc But that also implies that the church should be changing in order to reach the next generation and the lost community. 3) When failing to lead destroys all generations, but that failure begins with a refusal to live by Faith.

Love, Serve, Go
