Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 69

Scripture Passage: Numbers 12:1-10
Even Great Leaders Have Flaws
Moses was a great man and had accomplished great feats especially in Egypt but he was far from perfect and those who followed him knew this. One day Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because he had married an Ethiopian. Interestingly, when God heard it, He came down and rebuked them sharply; He was not in agreement with them albeit they had spoken the truth about Moses.
The lesson is this; there is no such reality as a perfect leader. Jesus was a perfect leader but His being perfect was not as a result of being a leader. Leaders are humans and like other humans they have flaws and they make mistakes. Being a leader does not exempt anyone from flaws or errors. However, followers are usually quick to see the leader’s fault, quicker to point it out to others and slow to forgive same.
Prayer: Father, help me to be understanding of the weaknesses of my leaders that as a leader I may enjoy the same favour.
