Leadership Promises - Not a 'Natural'

"Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth." Numbers 12:3. What words come to mind when you think of great leaders? It's doubtful that "meek" appears at the top of your list-yet that is the precise word God used to describe Moses. Moses had reasons to be humble.

Moses certainly wasn't a natural leader. Nothing in Scripture indicates he attracted or led anyone during the first eighty years of his life. So far as we know, his first attempt at exerting his influence to help the people resulted in the murder of an Egyptian and his flight from the country.

The next forty years Moses spent in exile in the desert of Midian, a time so uneventful that Scripture sums it up in three verses (Exodus 2:21-23). You don't have to be a "natural" to become a great leader; you simply need a heart for God and a teachable spirit.

Most of the great leaders in Scripture were made, not born. Happily for us, God is still making them today. Could you be one?
