Leadership Promises - In Your Footsteps

"And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to [David]. So he became captain over them. And there were about four hundred men with him."? 1 Samuel 22:2
Leadership Promises - In Your Footsteps
Leadership Promises - In Your Footsteps.
The men who David attracted while he fled from Saul eventually became like him. Some even killed giants, as he did-showing that what you are is what you reproduce. Observe what David teaches us about his leadership:

1. David attracted men even without pursuing them.
2. David drew deep loyalty from them without ever trying to get it.
3. David transformed these men without disenchanting them over their initial state.
4. David fought alongside these men and turned them into winners.

Consider the astounding exploits of some of these men. Second Samuel 23 tells us that Adino slew 800 men with a spear in one battle (v. 8); Eleazar struck down the enemy until his hand clung to his sword (v. 9,10); Shammah defended a plot of ground against an enemy army (v. 11, 12).

David attracted men like him-souls in distress. He also reproduced men like him-warriors and conquerors.
