Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 23

Scripture Passage: Genesis 43:1-14
The Leader Must Be Willing to Take a Risk to See the Vision Fulfilled
God had promised Jacob greatness; He told Jacob that a nation, a company of nations and kings would proceed from him but in this chapter that vision is threatened by famine and Jacob’s lineage is about to die from hunger and become extinct unless he releases his precious son Benjamin to go down to Egypt with his brothers to buy food. Fortunately, Jacob acts in line with the vision and releases Benjamin to go with Judah.
The lesson here is this; if the vision will become a reality, the leader will sometimes be required to take a risk. When Jacob let Benjamin go he took a risk as he had no assurance he would return to him alive.
Prayer: Father, give me grace to trust in you and let go whatever is required per time for the realisation of my vision.
