Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 267

Scripture Passage: 2 Samuel 6:1-5
Leaders Are Part of the Team
The Bible says concerning David, “Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand. And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God……..And David and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.” David was not in some faraway place giving instructions. He was in the midst of the people working with them.
The lesson here is this; leaders are part of the team. Therefore, they work with the team. A boss gives orders. But true leaders adopt the hands on approach, pitching in when required and demonstrating practically to their people how the work ought to be done. Leaders are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Are you a leader or a boss?
Prayer: Father, make me a leader.
