Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 258

Scripture Passage: Esther 2:16-20
Great Women Are Great Followers
As queen, Esther occupied a position of leadership. However even in that position she remained a follower of her uncle, Mordecai, who was a father-figure in her life. The Bible says, “Esther had not shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her: for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him.” As queen, Esther remained subject to Mordecai by choice. She was a good follower.
The lesson here is this; great women are great followers. They recognise that great followership is the pathway to great leadership. Therefore, they willingly follow those ahead of them, and obey their instructions. Great women are not rebellious. Great women have regard for constituted authority.
Prayer: Father, help me to be a great follower of those you have placed in authority over me.
