When you lead others, you will get scarred! You will experience danger and have to fight unnecessary battles when protecting those you lead from themselves and the tricks of the enemy. Don’t become discouraged by those you lead when they don’t appreciate your service or your sacrifice. For you see, you were called by God to serve! Keep your focus on Him, not those you serve. It is Him; you must ultimately give an account. Remember, it is not your battle; it is the Lord’s!
