Those who have been given the responsibility of feeding the flock, leading, instructing, equipping, and preparing God’s people will face difficulties. Some people are easily led and will follow by faith, whereas others will scarce follow at all. Moses learned as much.
The tendency of the leader or parent is to make people do what is right; yet, the truth is that we cannot make anyone do anything. God gave leaders the responsibility of influence, not control. Leaders must work to develop and manage an atmosphere and environment where people want to learn.
