Leadership Promises - Secure Leadership

"Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon."? 2 Samuel 12:9
Leadership Promises - Secure Leadership
Leadership Promises - Secure Leadership.
Security provides the foundation for strong leadership. When we feel insecure, we drift from our mission whenever trouble arises. We must feel secure when people stop liking us, when funding drops, when morale dips, or when others reject us. If we don't feel secure, fear will eventually cause us to sabotage our leadership.

Imagine what might have happened had Nathan lacked security. David had covered up everything so well; no one else knew what happened. Further, the popular David had led Israel to prominence among the nations, and most Israelites would side with David if he put up a fight.

Finally from a technical viewpoint, David had set up the man to be killed in battle by the Ammonites, but it wasn't his spear or sword that took Uriah's life. Nathan had to feel utterly secure in his plan of confrontation, or it would backfire.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible. Good day!
