Preparing to Cleave Daily: Day 10

Family Patterns
Scripture Passages: 2 Samuel 11:1-4 2 Samuel 12:1-12
The pattern of sexual misconduct moves through generations and in today’s scripture passage, we see David commit adultery with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah. This singular action had far reaching consequences for David.
Consider: What are the negative patterns in your family?
Prayer: Father, by the blood of Jesus, I escape negative patterns in my family in Jesus’ name.

Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 10

Scripture Passage: Genesis 9:18-27
The Followers Always Suffer for the Wrong Actions of the Leader.
Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth. One day he had too much to drink and uncovered himself in his tent. Ham saw his father’s nakedness and told his two brothers about it. They took a cloth and covered their father. The result was a blessing for Shem and Japheth and a curse for Ham. Interestingly though, when cursing Ham, Noah mentions Ham’s son, Canaan three times, declaring he will be a servant. Ham sinned but his descendants (followers) were cursed.
Every time the leader makes a poor choice or takes a wrong action, those he leads will suffer the consequences.
Prayer: Father, help me to make good decisions as a leader bearing in mind that those I lead will suffer the consequences of my wrong decisions and actions.
