Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 5

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: Genesis11:30 Genesis 21:1-2 Genesis 25:21 Genesis 29:31 Genesis 30:22
Today’s scripture passages reveal that the wives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob experienced barrenness until God stepped in. The evil pattern of barrenness travelled from one generation to the other.
Consider: What are the negative patterns in your family?
Prayer: Father, I destroy patterns of evil occurrences in my family. I will not repeat them in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 5

Scripture Passage: Matthew 20:20-28
Leadership Calls for Sacrifice.
It takes personal sacrifice to be a leader. Jesus left His exalted place in Heaven to come down to the earth to die for men; it was a sacrifice. Moses left his home and returned to Egypt to set Israel free; it was a sacrifice. Nehemiah left the comfort of the king’s palace to go and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem; it was a sacrifice.
If you want to be a great leader you must be willing to let go of something. Sacrifice is the way up.
Prayer: Father, help me to let go of what I have in order to become the leader you want me to be.
