Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 148

Scripture Passage: Judges 17:6; 21:25
The Absence of a Leader is the Absence of Law and Order
The Bible says, “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” This suggests a breakdown of law and order in Israel.
The lesson here is this; the absence of a leader is the absence of law and order. A man’s ways will always be right in his eyes but that is not to say that it is right. People require guidance. And leaders provide that guidance. If a leader is not present to make laws to guide people or to give them direction in line with already existing laws, people go their own way and do what their own thing. This creates a disharmony. And where there is disharmony there is chaos and zero progress. Therefore, the leadership positions in any organisation or nation must never be left vacant.
Prayer: Father, make me a leader that promotes peace and progress amongst those I lead.
