Step Up

In Joshua 24:15, Joshua is at the end of his life and has one final opportunity to speak to the nation he has led. He reminds them of what is most important and tells them that they will have to make a choice-they will either worship other false gods or declare their allegiance to the one true God. He then makes a bold (but not surprising) statement in front of his people. He says that his family will choose to follow God regardless of what other people will do.

It's important for leaders to take the first step of faith even when they are unsure of how those following them will respond. Our faithfulness will be measured in our obedience to God's direction and not in how it's received by others.
