Leaders vs. Bureaucrats…

Today, we – my family – learned a hard, but valuable lesson in the difference between leaders and bureaucrats. (Hey, my wife is a public school teacher, ‘nuf said?)

The main difference? Leaders are professional when dealing with their people. Bureaucrats are petty.

Lord, deliver us from petty pretenders. Help us never become like that in our service for You and our leadership among Your people.

(Now please forgive me for that, Lord, and bless all the pygmies in the Congo. Amen.)
