Leadership Promises - Vessels for Victory

When the children of Israel cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them . . ."  Judges 3:9,15
Leadership Promises - Vessels for Victory
Leadership Promises - Vessels for Victory.
True leaders always find a way to help the team win. Othniel found his people surrounded by enemies from Mesopotamia. He stepped forward, led the armies of Israel against a pagan king, and prevailed. His victory led to forty years of peace. Later, Moab formed an alliance with the Ammonites and Amalekites and attacked Israel. The Hebrews suffered defeat and served these enemies for eighteen years. When the people cried out to the Lord, Ehud stepped forward and led them to victory. This peace lasted for eighty years. A third judge, Shamgar, personally struck down 600 Philistines and rallied his people over Philistia.
What can we learn from this?

True leadership starts when a person:
  1. Perceives a need-spots a specific problem.
  2. Possesses a gift-has the competence to address the need.
  3. Parades a passion-casts vision for a passion to act.
  4. Persuades a people-attracts others to join the cause.
  5. Pursues a purpose-employs measures to accomplish the desired goal.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible.
Good day!
