Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 4

Scripture Passage: Matthew 16:17-18, Luke 22:54-62 and Acts 2:14-36
To get the Best from Those You Lead, Believe in Them.
Jesus believed in those He led. He said to Peter, “Thou art Peter, and on this rock I will build my church.” When Jesus made this statement, Peter was anything but a rock and we know this because he chickened out and denied his master before a little girl. However, because Jesus believed in Peter, Peter eventually became a rock. He stood before three thousand people and preached about Jesus. He couldn’t be silenced by the Jews; he went from being lily livered Peter to being a rock.
If you don’t believe in those you lead, you will never see them reach their full potential.
Prayer: Father, help me to believe in those you bring my way.
