When we follow a leader’s commands
When we think of a leader we are loyal to, why do we obey that leader’s commands?
I doubt that our loyalty is blind (or else, we admit that we are not followers of a leader but fans of an idol).
Our loyalty and obedience are most authentic when we view that the commands of the leader are consistent with our shared values and shared mission. In this sense, enacting the command of our leader means that we feel that the leader is with us.
Not dictative, but co-creative. A leader is not a dictator, but a co-creator.
John 8:21-30. The one who sent me is with me.
