Scripture:   1Timothy (NIV) 4:15  Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.

16  Watch your life and doctrine closely.  Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers

Observation:   Paul was writing to Timothy who was being trained to be a leader.  His life would be on display for people to see.  How he lived his life was very important.  What he believed was very important.  He must be diligent.    

Application:  These and similar scriptures serve two purposes.  First: they give instruction for leaders.  There is not a more important book on leadership than the Bible!   Second: they guide people as to which leaders they should follow.  People should carefully and prayerfully choose leaders who measure up to the Bible standard.  Leaders should be diligent in being godly leaders.  People should be diligent in choosing godly leaders. 

Prayer:   Lord, how wise of you to have both leaders and followers read the same book!  How foolish not to read it!  Amen
