Be the Head, Not the Tail

We are living in the world. This life on this earth causes many problems to us. Spiritually we must live for the heaven, but physically we must work for the living. And the values we have to obey for heaven are often in contradiction with the values of the world. In this case what should we do? What is our role in this life on earth?


Deuteronomy 28:13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.


God teaches that we should be the head in this world. Then what is the role of the head? The head is the most important part of the body. It controls and leads other body parts so that they can work harmoniously. In short, the head is the leader in the body.

When God set up us as head of the world, God teaches us that we should be the leader of the world unlike the tail, which receives directions from the head and obey the commands of the head. Therefore, when our thoughts contradict with the ways of the world, what we have to do is to change the ways of the world. We must not follow the ways of the world, but must teach the people of the right way that we should live on this earth.

Jesus also taught the disciples that we should be the head and lead the people in the righteous and good way. Just before his ascension, Jesus taught disciples to go out into the world and teach the people of the world about the truth so that they can also follow the truth.


Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.


Our role on this earth is to be the light and salt who can make changes in the world. We must be the head and lead the people; not vice versa. God made us the head of the world. Let us do our work faithfully. The tail cannot lead the head; the head should lead the tail. That was the life of the disciples such as Peter and Paul. We should also follow their examples, teaching and leading the people of the world.

    It is man's duty to obey God's word and keep his commandments. Let us become children of faith who fear God Elohim. Thank you Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother.

    I can really understand the will of God. God does not want us to follow the worldly customs. Rather God wants us to teach the world about the commands of God. God wants us to lead the world as head, not follow the world as tail. I will teach the commands of God to the people as leader who know the message of God.

    I will follow disciples' examples, teaching and leading the people of the world.
    Let’s fulfill our role as head!

    Only those who obey word of God can be the head not tail.
    So the way to be head is to keep the word of God that was recorded in the Bible.
