"Dreams don't come true they are 'made' true"
Russel Wilson

Following someone as opposed to leading someone is a difficult thing to do when you don't have a paradigm to guide your choice of who you will or will not follow.

I've never been much of a follower of people. Anybody that knows me will tell you so.
Not that I am unwilling to follow anyone. I just need to know the person or persons wanting me to follow them are going where I want to go, know how to get there, understand my strengths and weaknesses, have integrity, and care about what happens to me, on some level, while on the way.

Who would you trust your life to? Because when you follow someone, for all intents and purposes, you ARE putting your life, future, and well being in their hands.

It's good to have a developed criteria when it comes to choosing who you will follow, who you will TRUST,
Who you will friend,
Who you will marry,
Who you will vote for,
Who you will support,
Who you will work for
Who you will die for,
It's called integrity . . .

The great thing about following someone is that you don't have to know much about where you are going or how you are going to get there. You just have to follow.

Mountain guides take people into some of the roughest country there is; country most would never return from if they didn't have someone to follow who knew the way and how to survive while on the way. Jesus is like that.

It's sorta like the old Greyhound bus motto . . .
"Take the Bus and leave the driving to us!"

Knowing and following Christ becomes problematic only when the differing opinions of men become involved; creating an imperative to search for Him, find Him, know him, and ultimately follow him, individually, in the direction we each see Him take.
Yet, we collectively form a body that operates out of unity!

How can that be????

Christ is the head of the body . . . the eyes, ears, and most importantly, the BRAIN, are found in the Head . . . I guess that's why our relationship with him and the relationships we have with people Have to be based on Trust that the Head knows what it's doing . . . .even when we don't . . . :)
