The best leaders are normally the best followers.

Read the following scriptures and focus on the theme of "following" that is laid out through the Bible.
3 characteristics we need to reach "The Goal" of becoming a great follower and great leader:

1. Teachability (Read Galatians 4:1-2 below)
2. Humility (Read James 5:16 below)
3. Submission (Read Hebrews 13:17 below)
Wisdom about submission:

1. Submission is not a submission until you are asked to do what you don't want to do.
2. Submission is not a position of weakness, it is a position of strength. It takes two equals to submit. You can only submit because you are a mature person.
3. Submission is not slavery. It's not someone controlling your will. It's your will submitting to the will of God. Knowing God will honor you.
4. To be in authority you must be submitted to authority.
5. If you want to reach the goal, become a great leader. Great leaders are great followers.
Start Thinking
Ask questions to get your group thinking.
• Think of 5 people you follow in your life, whether you follow their example, their influence or you let them speak directly into your life. How has following those people impacted your life for good or bad?
• Have you ever been challenged with being under the authority of a bad leader, whether it be in the workplace, home or school? What are some things you have learned from following a bad leader? Was it difficult to practice teachability, humility and submission under the a leader you did not agree with?
Start Sharing
Choose questions that create openness.
• Take a few minutes and ask God to reveal the areas in your life that you lack teachability, humility and submission. How might giving these areas to God change the way you follow and lead others?
• What are some practical ways you can become a better follower in your workplace?
• What are some practical ways you can become a better follower in your home?
Start Praying
Be bold and pray with power.
• Father God, Thank you for providing the perfect example of a great follower making a great leader in your Son, Jesus Christ. Please search my heart and soul and heal areas of my life where I need to be a better follower, where I need to submit to the authority You have placed over my life so that I can experience the abundant life You have for me. Grow me into the leader You have purposed me to be. Amen!
