Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 365

Scripture Passage: 1 Samuel 9:6-8

Bad Leaders are Never Prepared.

When Saul’s servant suggested that they go to see the man of God, Saul confessed that he was unprepared. He had spent all he had and had nothing left to give the man of God. The servant, who in my opinion was the real leader as far as the journey went, had not spent all he had. Therefore, he saved the day as he had something they could give to the man of God.

The lesson here is this; Bad leaders are never prepared. Bad leaders are never prepared. They spend everything they have keeping nothing aside for the proverbial rainy day when it will be required. They do not think or plan ahead. They are not proactive and as such they find that they are always reacting to life’s circumstances as it catches them unaware and unprepared every time.

Prayer: Father, help me to live ready.
