Today as I was reading the profile of Jeremiah in the bible, I was reminded of the tremendous sacrifice that is required of leaders. It doesn't matter if you are called to be the leader of a multi-million dollar corporation, the leader in your family, or a leader in your community. The reality is we have all been called to lead in some form or fashion.
I think about how many people are overwhelmed or disgusted by their current situation, yet they aren't ready to do something different to get something different.
Most things worth having come at a cost. For some, it may call for a sacrifice of time; for others it may call for a sacrifice of comfort; yet for others, it may cost ending unhealthy relationships or bad habits to get something different.
Today, as you examine your personal situation and the things you want in life, I pose the simple question, what are you willing to give up to go up?
