Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 177

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 17:48-51
Leaders Approach Every Task With A Sense of Purpose and Urgency
There is something I have always found fascinating about the battle between David and Goliath. The Bible says, “And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.”
The lesson here is this; Leaders approach every task with a sense of purpose and urgency. This is revealed in the manner that David managed the battle with Goliath. Once he reached a decision to get rid of Goliath, he wasted no time executing same. According to the Bible, he hasted and ran toward the army to meet Goliath. The words, hasted and ran, suggest purpose and urgency.
Prayer: Father, give me a sense of purpose and urgency in approaching every task.
