Acharei-Kedoshim – Leadership and Responsibility

Why is the command for the service of the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) on Yom Kippur prefaced with the mention of the death of Aharon’s sons? Why was this command given six months before it was to be performed?

How does one balance the honor received from leadership with the responsibility it brings?
