Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 237

Scripture Passage: Numbers 27:3-8
Great Women are an Inspiration to Other Women
Zelophehad had five daughters. They were unusual women. After the death of their father, they said to Moses, “Our father died…..and had no sons. Why should the name of our father be done away….because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.” Moses turned to the Lord for guidance and God said. “The daughters of Zelophehad speak right….give them a possession….among their father’s brethren….and….speak unto the children of Israel…..if a man die, and have no son……cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.”
The lesson here is this; great women are an inspiration to other women. Every time I read the story of the daughters of Zelophehad, I am deeply inspired. Their story makes a complete nonsense of gender inequality which many women use as an excuse for inaction. Yes, their story sends this short but powerful message to all women, “you can too, because you’re a woman.”
Prayer: Father, make me an inspiration to other women.
