If your leader is broke, chances are you're broke, if your leader is a bully chances are you'll develop into a bully. If your leader loves to control others then that explains why you love to control others. If your leader is stubborn chances are you're stubborn.
If your leader is a giver chances are you'll become a giver. If your leader is compassionate then this will explain why you have compassion for others as well.
Spiritual law dictates the following in regards to leadership:
"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments, Psalm 133:1-2
The spiritual law in this particular Psalm is clearly revealing that whatever affects the head of anyone or anything will eventually affect the body of whatever that head is leading. In other words it is almost impossible to be under any leadership and not be contaminated by whatever that leadership represents be it good or bad.
The head or leadership of anything or anyone becomes the gateway to which everything enters. For example I know of a certain church where the Pastor is a controller, well when you observe the general behavior of the members they display the same controlling traits among themselves and by extension their families. This is why scripture says, "If ye smite the shepherd (the head or leader) the sheep (the body or organization) will scatter" Zechariah 13:7, Mark 14:27, Matthew 26:31
The bottom line is this, change to or for any body, group or organization begins with the change of whomever is leading the charge of that group or institution. Haven't you noticed that you have been sowing into that Ministry year after year but yet things still can not turn around financially for you neither the Ministry? Well, check out the leadership of that organization or if you're married check the leadership of your home. Again, if the leader is broke, then more than likely you will remain broke or at best you'll always be financially struggling. The curse of poverty over the leader or the head has and will continue to flow down to the body just like the spiritual law of headship has revealed in Psalm 133:2.
Scripture tells us in John 13:16, John 15:20. Matthew 10:24, Luke 6:40 and also in Acts 17:11, that "NO SERVANT IS ABOVE OR GREATER THAN HIS MASTER" It is the leader that sets the ORDER or DISORDER in any organization. He or she would be the primary reason as to why things are flowing or not flowing.
My question to you this morning is simply this, are you broke, frustrated, confused or just tired of the same old, same old day after day? Well, my next question is WHO IS IT THAT'S LEADING YOU, WHO IS IT THAT YOU'RE SUBJECT TO? Because whoever is leading you or whomever you're following is either directly or indirectly the root of your problems in fact you mirror whoever your leader represents. Make no mistake my friend, the body of any organization is a direct reflection of its leadership.
