Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 201

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 30:18-25
Leaders Recognise the Importance of Team Work
The Bible says, “David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David….came to the two hundred men, which were so faint that they could not follow David ….then answered all the wicked men…..said, because they went not with us, we will not give them ought of the spoil that we have recovered…..Then said David, Ye shall not do so…..but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike. And it was so…..that he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel….”
The lesson here is this; Leaders recognise the importance of team work. They know the value of each member of the team. David recognised that those who tarried with the stuff were just as important as those who went to war. They were all members of the team, working for the collective good of the team.
Prayer: Father, help me to value team work.
