Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 339

Scripture Passage: John 8:1-11
In Other to Deal Fairly Leaders Must Beware of Double Standard
One morning, while Jesus was in the temple, the Pharisees and Sadducees brought Him a woman they claimed had been taken in the very act of adultery. They wanted to stone her according to the law. However, Jesus saw their double standard. They had brought the woman to be punished but set free her accomplice, the man. So, He said, “he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Jesus could have taken their side, but He knew it would be double standard to punish one offender while the other walked free.
The lesson here is this; in other to deal fairly, leaders must beware of double standard. If a leader is unfair, he will create division amongst his own team. And if a leader will be fair he must hear all sides of a story. He must punish all offenders, equally. He must not have a sacred cow that cannot be touched.
Prayer: Father, help me to be fair in my dealings with all.
