Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 9

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: Numbers 25:1-9
The sexual misconduct of Jacob’s sons, Reuben and Judah travelled through generations and years later 24,000 descendants of the same family lost their lives due to sexual misconduct. The pattern was not dealt with so it dealt 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 9

Scripture Passage: Matthew 7:3-5
The Leader Must Lead Himself First.
Lead yourself before you lead others; teach yourself, before you teach others. Become a follower of yourself first; buy into your vision first. Charity they say begins at home. Whatever you want to do for another, that do first for yourself. This was one principle of life that Jesus taught. Take out the log from your eye first and then you will see properly to remove the speck in your brother’s eye.
Guess what? If you have a problem following you, others will too.
Prayer: Father, help me to lead myself before I ever attempt to lead another.
