Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 150

Scripture Passage: Ruth 2:2-3
Leaders Take the Initiative
Ruth arrived Bethlehem with her mother-in-law at the beginning of the barley harvest. She was a foreigner in this land with no idea how things were done. She could have remained at home and made the excuse that she was in unfamiliar territory and didn’t know what to do. But she didn’t. The Bible records, “And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace.” She did not wait to be told what to do. She took the initiative.
The lesson here is this; leaders take the initiative. When it comes to taking action leaders never wait to be told what to do. Leaders are always proactive. They see ahead, think ahead and so are always one step ahead of others. They wouldn’t be leaders if they weren’t.
Prayer: Father, help me to consistently take the initiative.
