Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 364

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 9:6-8

Bad Leaders are Full of Excuses

When the servant of Saul suggested that they visit a seer, Saul almost discouraged the young man with his negativity. He said, “what shall we bring the man…the bread is spent……there is not a present……what have we?”

The lesson here is this; Bad leaders are full of excuses. This is the result of being negative. They accept defeat even before they begin. They look at what is not available. They see impossibilities instead of possibilities. They tell you that it cannot be done and proceed to tell you why it cannot be done, even before they have tried.

Prayer: Father, give me the grace to be positive and to see opportunities where others see problems.
