Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 312

Scripture Passage: Matthew 10:1
Secure Leaders Give Their Jobs Away
Jesus began His ministry healing the sick, and casting out demonic spirits. Then He empowered His disciples to do the same. The Bible says, “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
The lesson here is this; secure leaders give their jobs away. They empower their followers to do their jobs. Jesus was a secure leader. He did not only give His job to His followers, He desired that they would perform better than He. He said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” Secure leaders recognise that when their followers can do their job, then a promotion is in view. Therefore, they willingly their job away.
Prayer: Father, help me to be a secure leader.
