Text: Matthew 16:21-28
A leader should create an environment for people to thrive and be responsible for their lives and development (v.24). Let people know that they must work hard for their survival and development. They must do their part and move forward.

Meditate on verse 24. How are you going to apply it to your life?

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, teach me how to carry my cross daily and follow You. Amen.
