Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 12

Scripture Passage: Genesis 11:1-8
Only a United Team Can Make Progress.
Jesus taught that a house divided against itself cannot stand, or make progress. The men in the scripture passage initially had one language, which symbolises unity. As long as they had one language they made progress. God acknowledged that they would be able to accomplish the task because they were united. However, when He scattered their language, disunity appeared where there had once been unity and the result was that they abandoned the work. They could no longer make progress.
The lesson here is this; unity fosters peace which leads to progress and disunity fosters chaos which leads to stagnation. As a leader, it is your responsibility to ensure unity.
Prayer: Father, make me an advocate for peace and unity.
