Leadership Promises - Connect With Your Leadership Heritage

"So all Israel was recorded by genealogies, and indeed, they were inscribed in the book of the kings of Israel. But Judah was carried away captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness."  1 Chronicles 9:1
Leadership Promises - Connect With Your Leadership Heritage
Leadership Promises - Connect With Your Leadership Heritage.
The first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles furnish a genealogy of Israel's leaders-almost a third of the book! The enormous space given to these ancestral lists illustrates the vast importance of heritage to a Hebrew leader.

Our generation and culture seem to place a much lower value on tradition and family stock than others did in history. What do we learn from the lineages of Jewish leaders?
  • They remained connected to their heritage.
  • They saw their place in history and gained perspective from it.
  • They were able to honor and pay respect to their forefathers.
  • They saw their lineage as a family blessing and passed on this blessing.
  • They used their heritage to provide a sense of stability for their children.
  • They sensed tendencies of ancestral giftedness and calling.
  • They could retain their identity even when exiled to a foreign land.
