Apperance or character

a Jesus thought...
One's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses. (Luke 12:15)

a Godly thought...
If we are to demonstrate the love of God, yet people don't want to follow the God of love, then God is still pleased with us. (p190 Barker)

a leading thought...
In people's attempts to enlist a following, some have resorted to developing the appearance of a leader rather than developing the character of a leader. (p87 Blackaby)

a Dave thought...
Came across this gem from 300 BC written by Chineses philosopher Lao Tsu...

Go to the people,
Live with them.
Learn from them.
Love them.
Start with what they know,
Build with what they have,
But with the best leaders.
When the work is done,
The task is accomplished,
The people will say,
"We have done it ourselves."

Just a thought.

Ooh... I like that gem in the 'Dave thought' section.

Wouldn't that be a great way to deal with the 'Little Children are Sacred' report? (Yes, still thinking about that report)
