Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 198

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 30:1-8
Leaders Take Practical Steps to Resolve Crisis
David and his men arrived Ziklag to discover that the town had been invaded and their wives and children kidnapped. They wept, until they had no more power to weep and spoke of stoning David. But the Bible says, “And David said to Abiathar the priest….bring me hither the ephod…..and David inquired at the Lord, saying, shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them?” David realised that neither weeping nor stoning him would solve the problem at hand. The way forward was to recover what was lost.
The lesson here is this; leaders take practical steps to resolve crisis. Others may talk about the crisis, complain about the crisis, weep because of the crisis or simply play the blame game. However, a true leader will rise to the challenge of resolving the crisis. True leaders are solution providers. Are you a leader? How do you react to crisis?
Prayer: Father, in the midst of a crisis, help me to seek resolution above all else.
