Nicely written. And true.

Beautiful words of wisdom.

It should work that way. Sometimes it does work that way. But there are some leaders (as well as non-leaders) who do not do as this article suggests. God bless those who do. They are the hand of God in difficult times. They are like a drink of cool water on a hot summer day.

May God also bless those who do not. Some how.

In Romans 15:1-3, Paul suggested that the strong should bear the infirmities of the weak. That we should work to please our neighbors (in good and edifying ways). Reminding us that "even Christ pleased not himself," but bore the pain our "reproach," of our sins, our weaknesses, or, as Isaiah put it, our "turning every one to his own way." (Isaiah 53:6)

Surely we should work with others... as the article suggests, for whom Christ has paid so very much. And it is good when we do so. But all is not well, everywhere, in Zion. Would that it were.
