Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 137

Scripture Passage: Judges 6:25-27
Leaders are Sometimes Afraid
As soon as Gideon was called to lead, he received an instruction to cut down the altar of Baal which belonged to his father and the grove by the altar. In its place, he was to build an altar unto the Lord and offer his father’s bullock as a sacrifice, using the wood of the grove he had cut down. This was a dangerous mission. Gideon was afraid, and rightly so. The Bible says, “And so it was, because he feared his father’s household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night.” He was afraid but his fear did not stop him.
The lesson here is this; leaders are sometimes afraid. And this is okay, because they are human. However, leaders do not allow their fears stop them from taking action. Leaders act in spite of their fears. They feel the fear and they do it anyway.
Prayer: Father, give me faith in place of fear.
