LEADERSHIP

January 14:2019

Therefore Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel. Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you”
Deuteronomy 31:22-23 (NKJV)

`

Leadership is a call to service. It is tasked with the responsibility of guiding and being accountable for those being led. It is not for positions of accomplishment or avenues to lord it over others. Leadership in God’s kingdom is not the pursuit of fame, power, glory or praises of men. It is actually the most humble position because one has to dedicate himself or herself to the good of others. It requires strength to be meek, humble and totally committed to the service of others.

We are to be leaders based on personality traits and character, and less on positions and titles. Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves (Luke 22:24-27).

Leadership from a godly perspective requires service and sacrifice. Moses said to Joshua, ‘be strong and of good courage.’ Leadership requires that you give your heart. If your heart is involved, no matter the obstacle, you can generate the force to take you through it (2 Corinthians 12:12). You are required to lead when others get to leave. You must give your best even when you are not your best.

Dear child of God, heaven has need of your leadership: in your family, at work and wherever you find yourself. Godly leadership bring blessings to the people. When you lead in righteousness, the people will rejoice (Proverbs 29:2).
