Dave Baldwin posted a comment on my last entry that got me thinking: “Why is it our followers we always seem to be trying to please?”

It reminds me of a story my pastor tells of how one of his daughters told him a kid at school made her so mad. His response was to ask why she made that person her boss. “She’s not my boss!” she countered indignantly. “Sure, she is. If she’s driving your behavior or getting under your skin, you’ve made her your boss.”

If a leader exists to please his followers, is he a leader?
