Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 299

Scripture Passage: Proverbs 1:7
Foolish Leaders Never Learn
The Bible says, “but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Do you know anyone like this? Someone who won’t listen to wise counsel or take heed to instruction? Unfortunately, many in leadership positions are like this.
The lesson here is this; foolish leaders never learn. They hate words of wisdom and they never take heed to instruction. Therefore, they are constantly in trouble. They do not learn from their bad experiences and they do not learn from the bad experiences of others. They may have mentors but they never heed the instructions of their mentors. They are fools, and best left alone. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:9, “Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.” Nabal was a foolish leader and his servant said concerning him, “he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.” Foolish leaders reject wisdom and instruction and so they never become great leaders.
Prayer: Father, help me to embrace wisdom and instruction.
