Giving instruction and direction is a function of leadership. Everyone is born with a leadership gene. Everyone one is born with the capacity to instruct and direct. Men are purposed to be fathers and women are purposed to be mothers by the leadership gene that is embedded into our DNA.
By virtue of the need for family development and guidance, God deposited leadership capability in us all. However, the variable that demands concern is the scope of our leadership authority. The extent or limitation of our scope of leadership authority is what often complicates the leadership issue.

There may not be any disappointment in heaven but there's going to be a whole lot of surprise because Jesus said, “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. Mat. 7: 21-23
22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.
23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.
Of course the people to whom this applies are so self-deceived they won't know this is referring to them until it’s too late. God ain't playin. He is about to separate the wheat from the tares.
There is a little-known prophet in the Holy Scriptures by the name of Micah. He is considered a “minor” prophet. However, Micah the minor prophet had some pretty major things to say that speak just as powerfully today as they did in 700 B.C. when he began his prophetic warnings to Israel and Judah.
