Today’s Reading – Ezra 7-10
The people had a problem.
Ezra was their leader.
Notice that the people knew what needed to be done and offered their support.
Too often, we know what needs to be done. We even appoint leaders to get the job done.
Our problem is that . . .
1) we don’t hold our leaders accountable to the task
2) we don’t support the leaders in the task
When is the last time you offered your support to the leader of your congregation or your community?
When is the last time you offered your support with the words “Whatever you need me to do.”?
It is one thing to support with words and completely other thing to support with actions.
What kind of supporter are you?
