Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 205

Scripture Passage: 2 Samuel 3:31
Leaders Lead by Being Examples Themselves
The Bible says, “And David said to Joab, and to all the people that were with him, rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. And King David himself followed the bier.”
The lesson here is this; Leaders lead by being examples themselves. Leaders who will truly be effective in getting their people to do what they want will not just tell them, they will show them. People are more likely to do what they see the leader do, than do what they hear the leader say. Consequently, a leader must be seen doing whatever it is he desires that his people do.
Prayer: Father, help me to be a good example.
