It is so interesting to me that a little phrase, first used by Jesus over 2,000 years ago, has now become one of the most powerful phrases in social networking. Everywhere we turn, we are met with pleas to 'follow me'! 'Follow me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, follow me on my blog'. Even as you read this article, if you look to the right, you will see my own plea for you to 'become a follower'. When I first began my blog, I was so excited to check how many followers I had. Yet maybe what should really excite me is how many people would be inspired to follow me, or my example, when I have gone. And so I ask myself- who have I nurtured, mentored, encouraged or inspired to be as passionate about Children's Ministry as I am?
In this world of followers, ducklings follow ducks, people follow leaders, Christians follow Christ. Who will follow me? Who will follow you?
