Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 78

Scripture Passage: Matthew 20:20-22
Those Who Seek to Share the Leader’s Glory Must Partake of the Leader’s Story
The mother of James and John, sons of Zebedee, once paid Jesus a surprise visit. She had a request to make. She said, “Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.” Jesus said to her; “Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptised with the baptism that I am baptised with?” While she spoke of partaking of His glory, He spoke of partaking of His story. In other words, loyalty.
The lesson here is this; those who seek to share the leader’s glory, must be ready to be partakers of the leader’s story. If you can’t handle the story, you can’t partake of the glory. Wise leaders first promote those who stayed with them through their trials.
Prayer: Father, help me to identify and reward those who stay loyal to my vision.
