Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 14

Scripture Passage: Genesis 14:1-4
When a Leader is a Task Master the People Rebel
A leader is not a task master; a leader is a servant of the people. A leader gives his time and resources to better the lives of the people. A task master however is different; he takes from the people their time and resources to better his life while they are impoverished. Chedorlaomer was not a leader but a task master. The people served him for twelve years out of compulsion but in the thirteenth year they rebelled.
The lesson here is this; a leader who is a task master can always expect rebellion from his followers.
Prayer: Father, help me to see the difference between a leader and a task master and give me grace to be the former.
