Making Good Sense

Jeremiah 10:21 contains a dire warning for anyone in a position of leadership in the church—“The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the Lord; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.”

No one wants to be called “senseless”, but that’s exactly what the Bible says about a leader who does not ask for God’s guidance. The failure of a leader to pray shows that he does not have a proper understanding about how to succeed. Without the direction of the Lord and the power that he gives, no leader can expect to prosper.

A leader who fails to pray not only hurts himself, he causes harm to the people he is trying to lead. There are no winners when a church leader doesn’t have the good sense to inquire of the Lord.

It just makes good sense to pray!
