Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 193

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 24:1-6
Great Leaders Understand Loyalty
David had an opportunity to kill Saul and was encouraged by his men to seize it. Although he did not take their counsel, he reached out and cut off the skirt of Saul’s robe. And the Bible says, “And it came to pass afterward, that David’s heart smote him, because he had cut off Saul’s skirt. And he said to his men, the Lord forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord.”
The lesson here is this; great leaders understand loyalty. They recognise that in order to receive loyalty from followers one must be loyal to one’s leaders. Those who sow seeds of betrayal always reap the fruits of betrayal and those who sow the seeds of loyalty can expect to reap a similar harvest.
Prayer: Father, help me stay loyal to those I follow that I may reap the same act in those I lead.
