Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 215

Scripture Passage: 2 Samuel 15:13-37
Wise Leaders Have a Comeback Strategy Even When They Flee
As David fled from Absalom, he was hopeful of his return. He said unto Zadok the priest, “if I shall find favour in the eyes of the Lord, He will bring me again…” And he said to his friend Hushai, “Return to the city…..what thing soever thou shalt hear out of the king’s house thou shalt tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests…..and by them shall ye send unto me everything that ye can hear.” This was David’s strategy for defeating Absalom and returning to his place as king of Israel.
The lesson here is this; wise leaders have a comeback strategy even when they flee. While it is possible that they may be overcome by sudden calamity, for which they are unprepared, and have to flee in order to stay alive, even in that situation they will have hope for their comeback and along with it a strategy.
Prayer: Father, help me to always have a plan.
