Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 7

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: Genesis 34:1-29 Genesis 49:5-7 Numbers 20:10-12
Levi had an uncontrollable anger. It drove him to kill a man and receive a curse from his dying father. Years later, Moses, the descendant of Levi, was unable to enter the Promised Land because of anger.
Consider: What are the negative patterns in your family?
Prayer: Father, I destroy negative patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 7

Scripture Passage: John 8:1-11, Luke 6:42
A Leader Must Be Fair.
A leader who is not fair in his dealings with people will soon lose what little respect his followers have for him. And because people follow leaders they respect, once respect is lost, the people will cease to follow and will in some cases rebel against the leader.
Jesus showed fairness and taught others to do same. When a woman was taken in adultery and brought to Him for judgement, He responded in fairness. Although she had sinned, He knew it was unfair for people with sin in their lives to judge a person who had sinned and He said as much.
Prayer: Father, help me to be fair and considerate in all my dealings with people.
