Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 176

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 17:41-47
Leaders are Bold and Refuse to be Intimidated
As David approached Goliath, the giant attacked him verbally to put fear in him. When Goliath verbally attacked the armies of Israel, prior to this time, they became afraid and fled from him. But David was different. He did not cower at the words of the giant or at his size. For every word that Goliath spoke to David, David had an equally weighty response. Finally Goliath had nothing more to say and according to the Bible, “David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.”
The lesson here is this; Leaders are bold and refuse to be intimidated. One major characteristic that sets leaders apart from followers is boldness. Anyone who will lead people towards the accomplishment of a vision must be bold and fearless and refuse to be intimidated as he takes on the oppositions that are bound to come.
Prayer: Father, give me boldness in place of fear.
