I have followers! Does that scare you as much as it scares me?? I’m working hard to establish this blog and I’ve just started in with Twitter. I have to tell you it was kind of exciting when I got my first followers! My first follower here is Deanna from Home Haven, and the oldest continuously published newspaper in Illinois is following me on Twitter – no pressure there! Following me… following my words. Viewing the photographs I post. Wow. What a responsibility! What shall I say? Shall I be funny? Inspiring? Heartwarming? Motivational?
Today I’ll tell you that I am also a follower. I am following the Journal Courier, Home Haven, and several others. I’m reading what they write and paying attention to their words, and their words may have an impact on my life, positive or negative. Even more than this, though, I am a follower of Christ. I can have confidence that my path is straight when I follow Christ as my leader in life. I wonder… am I reading what He’s written? Do I spend as much time reading my Bible and communing with the Lord as I do studying the photos on the blogs and reading others’ words? I think not.
Like the children in Peter Pan, we’re “Following the leader, the leader, the leader… We’re following the leader, wherever he may go.”
Are you a follower? Best be sure whom you are following and how closely you follow.
