Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 107

Scripture Passage: Joshua 1:8
The Leader is Not Above the Law
God said to Joshua, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth: but thou shalt meditate therein day and night that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein.” In other words, Joshua was to do all that was written in the law. As Israel’s leader he was not to keep some of the law but all of the law.
The lesson here is this; the leader is not above the law. He is equal with everyone else under the law. Leaders who fail to keep the law because they think it is not for them soon find that they are leading a lawless people because the people become like the leader. The leader therefore must set a good example by obeying the law.
Prayer: Father, make me a good example to those I lead.
