The word lead


The English word “lead” originated from an Anglo Saxon word, laeden, that meant to follow a course. The original meaning did not involve having, or demanding, followers. Followers originally meant, in effect, fellow-ers – people who walked along the same journey. They did not strive to become the leader of everyone else who were going in the same direction. In it’s pure form lead simply meant to be led by what is right. It was a sound method because human leaders come and go, what is right is always there for you and all others who will come later on the same right course. It is that actual meaning of “lead” ” that is found in true Christianity ” that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty”.
