Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 337

Scripture Passage: John 6:1-6
Leaders Know What to Do
On a certain day, Jesus and His team were faced with the challenge of feeding a multitude. The Bible says, “When Jesus…saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.” There was a challenge, but Jesus, the leader, knew what to do.
The lesson here is this; leaders know what to do. This is because the leader has first made the journey, at least in his mind, before he takes anyone else with him. Therefore, he is never stranded. He knows the road well. He has travelled it before. At every cross road, he knows which way to turn. That is why he is the leader. When the children of Israel were trapped between Pharaoh’s army and the Red Sea, Moses their leader, under the inspiration of God, the ultimate leader, asked them to go forward.
Prayer: Father, help me to know what to do always.
