Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 111

Scripture Passage: Joshua 2:1-13
Leaders are Quick to See and Seize Opportunities
When Joshua sent two men to spy out the land of Jericho, they entered into the house of a harlot named Rahab and lodged there. When the king of Jericho asked her to bring forth the men she mislead him into thinking they had already departed and she hid both men in the roof of the house. This was a dangerous situation but Rahab saw in it an opportunity to negotiate with the spies the deliverance of her entire family and she seized it. When the children of Israel returned to destroy Jericho, Rahab and all that belonged to her were spared.
The lesson here is this; leaders are quick to see and seize opportunities. Where others see problems, leaders see opportunities, and when they see them they seize them. Rahab saw an opportunity when the spies lodged in her house and she seized it to the saving of her entire household.
Prayer: Father, help me to see and seize the opportunities in every situation.
