Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 232

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 25:1-35
Great Women Know How to Keep Calamity at Bay
Abigail was a wise woman married to a foolish man named Nabal. When David was in need he turned to Nabal for help. He had prior to this time protected Nabal’s sheep and herdsmen. Nabal however, had no regard for David’s act of kindness and was not going to return the favour. David decided to destroy Nabal’s entire household. When Abigail heard, she took provision and hurried to meet David while he was far away. David accepted her gift, her person and her wise counsel and returned. Thus Abigail was able to keep impending doom away from her household.
The lesson here is this; great women know how to keep calamity at bay. They understand that every crisis is unique and will require a unique approach to resolve it. They recognise that the solution to one emergency is not necessarily the solution to another. Great women are also wise women and brilliant mediators.
Prayer: Father, help me to know what to do in crisis.
