Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 8

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: Genesis 35:22 Genesis 49:3-4 Genesis 38:11-18
Reuben slept with his father’s concubine and Judah slept with his son’s wife. Both brothers were involved in abominable sexual acts. Unfortunately, the pattern of sexual misconduct did not end with them.
Consider: What are the negative patterns in your family?
Prayer: Father, I reject negative patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 8

Scripture Passage: Matthew 23:1-4
A Leader Must Lead by Example.
People will not do what the leader says, they will do what the leader does; therefore the leader must lead by example. Jesus began to do and teach (Acts 1:1). A leader must practise what he preaches. To say and not do makes you a hypocrite and those who follow you will soon resent you and turn away from you. Remember, if you are a fake, people can usually spot you a mile away, so in the long run you deceive no one but yourself.
Prayer: Father, help me to practise what I preach.
