Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 226

Scripture Passage: 1 Kings 3:16-27
Wise Women Know When to Quit
Two women came before Solomon with a living child. Each claimed to be the mother of this child. In a bid to uncover the truth, Solomon asked that a sword be brought and the baby split amongst both women. Immediately, the mother of the baby gave up her rights and privileges of being its mother. She asked that the baby be given alive and whole to the other woman instead. She was without doubt the baby’s mother but she knew that if she insisted on this truth, she would at best be the mother of a dead baby, and so she quit.
The lesson here is this; wise women know when to quit. There is a common saying that winners never quit and quitters never win. Wise women know this. But they also know that sometimes the only way to win is to quit.
Prayer: Father, make me a wise woman knowing when to quit and when to fight.
