Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 29

Scripture Passage: Exodus 2:1-14
When You Try to Lead Expect Criticism
A leader should expect to be criticised, it comes with the leadership position. Moses grew up as an Egyptian but he knew who he really was and where he belonged. He did not like to see his people suffer and one day as he watched an Egyptian beat up an Israelite, anger rose up in him and he slew the Egyptian. The following day he saw two Israelites strive and tried to settle them but he was criticised for killing the Egyptian.
The lesson here is this; as a leader you will be criticised by the same people you try to help. Moses was criticised not by the Egyptians but by the same people he tried to help.
Prayer: Father, help me to learn how to handle criticism so that it does not destroy my vision.
