MAIN IDEA: “Choose to take Action”
Civil war Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, previously a Maine school teacher, was leader of a regiment during the battle of Gettysburg. His band of men successfully held off many attempts by the Confederate army to advance. Finally, with the enemy reinforced and charging, and his men out of bullets, he choose to fix bayonets and charge them. This so surprised the enemy that they turned and ran.
When faced with the choice of standing up for right, the choices are to do nothing or take action. Choose to act. Do the right thing for the right reason.
A good leader has the ability to inspire others to be their best. Choose who you follow carefully. An army of sheep lead by a lion will defeat an army of lions lead by a sheep. When faced with a decision many people say I am waiting on God. However, understand that in most cases God is waiting on you to act. Failure exists only for the one who quits
Make sure that, whether you are leading or following, you are going in the right direction.
