Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 163

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 10:21-23; 13:5-6
The People Ultimately Act Like Their Leader
On the day Saul was to be presented to the nation of Israel as their king, he set a bad precedence by going into hiding. Three chapters later, when the Philistines were set to fight against Israel, the Bible says, “When the men of Israel saw that they were in a strait, then the people did hide themselves in caves, and in thickets, and in rocks and in high places and in pits.” Saul began his reign as their king by hiding and the people he led soon followed suit.
The lesson here is this; the people ultimately act like their leader. They do as they see their leader do and totally ignore whatever he leader says. Therefore, leaders must be careful what they do in secret and in the open as those they lead are always quick to emulate same.
Prayer: Father, help me to act right in secret and in open.
