Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 27

Scripture Passage: Exodus 1:1-22
A Bad Leader Disregards Great Leaders
Many years after Joseph died the Bible says that a Pharaoh arose who did not know Joseph. I think that the Pharaoh must have known Joseph as he was a national hero in Egypt and remember that his bones were still in Egypt. I believe they would have been kept in a place befitting a man of his status. My thought is that this was the case of a leader who chose to disregard a great leader from the past albeit his achievements. He set out to deal cruelly with Joseph’s people and eventually he lost his place as leader and lost his son who would have succeeded him as leader.
The lesson here is this; if you seek to be a great leader then you must of necessity honour all great leaders even those from the past. What you sow you reap. If you give honour, you will receive honour.
Prayer: Father, help me to honour all great leaders past and present.
