Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 57

Scripture Passage: Exodus 32:1-14
Good Leaders are Selfless
As the children of Israel journeyed through the wilderness, several times, they angered the Lord and He would have destroyed them and made Moses a great nation. One of such instances was the worship of the golden calf. God said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff necked people. Now therefore, let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them and I will make of thee a great nation.” However, Moses always pleaded on behalf of the people and God repented of the evil He thought to do to Israel. It isn’t that Moses did not desire to become a great nation but he put the needs of the children of Israel before his.
The lesson here is this; a good leader is selfless. His desire ultimately is not to be great but to make others great.
Prayer: Father, help me to be a selfless leader.
