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:
  • David attracted men even without pursuing them.
  • David drew deep loyalty from them without ever trying to get it.
  • David transformed these men without disenchanting them over their initial state.
  • 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 (vv. 9,10); Shammah defended a plot of ground against an enemy army (vv. 11, 12).

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