Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 199

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 30:18-25
Good Leaders Demonstrate Equity in All Their Dealings
When David set out with his men to pursue the Amalekites and recover their kidnapped wives and children, not everyone could keep up. A number of the men were faint and so stayed back and did not go to the battle. When it was time to divide the spoils, certain men, whom the Bible rightly calls, “wicked men and men of Belial,” resolved that those who did not go to battle would not partake of the spoils. David quickly stepped in and set them straight. He ensured everyone partook of the spoils from the battle with Amalek. By so doing, he endorsed impartiality
The lesson here is this; good leaders demonstrate equity in all their dealings. And they demand the same standard from those they lead. Leaders who love and seek peace and unity within their team must embrace equity. No equity, no unity and no unity, no progress.
Prayer: Father, help me to embrace and demonstrate equity in all my dealings.
