Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 79

Scripture Passage: Numbers 14:1-4
Leaders Take People Forward or Backward
Following the negative report given by ten of the twelve spies Moses sent to survey the land of Canaan, the children of Israel decided to return to Egypt. They said, “Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.” One leader had brought them out of bondage and now they required another leader to take them back into bondage.
The lesson here is this; in whichever way people decide to go (forward or backward) they will need and they will seek a leader. In whichever direction people decide to go, there is a leader to take them there. Leaders never leave people where they meet them, they move them forward or backward. What kind of leader are you and in which direction are you moving your team or organisation?
Prayer: Father, help me to be a leader that takes people forward.
