It’s important to have spiritual leaders in our lives, specifically older and more mature ones. If we want to think like a leader, we can’t think alone. We think with the people God puts in our lives.

In 1 Samuel 3, Samuel first hears God’s voice as the voice of his mentor, Eli. Often, the voice of the Lord may sound like our mentor, so we may be tempted to ignore or reject it. Don’t reject it just because it sounds familiar. If it weren’t for Eli, Samuel would have never realized that this was the voice of God.

If we want to think like a leader, we need the older and wiser voices in our lives. I encourage you to think, not independently but along with other leaders.
