Leadership Promises - The Importance of Starting Well

"It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that you may distinguish between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean, and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them by the hand of Moses."? Leviticus 10:9-11

God does not take it lightly when the leaders He calls disregard His commandments. When Nadab and Abihu broke God's laws (Leviticus 10:1-7), He executed them on the spot. Sounds harsh, you say? Consider this. Any movement in its infant stages must set a standard or pattern of operations.

If God allowed compromise at the beginning, things would surely grow worse. The same principle came into play in the new church when God took the lives of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11). Nadab and Abihu broke the Law of Solid Ground, which states that trust is the foundation of leadership. As holy priests and trusted leaders, they were supposed to model obedience for the people.

God could not permit them even the slightest renegade move, the smallest maverick act, for that would give permission for others to compromise as well.
