He took David from tending the ewes and lambs and made him the shepherd of Jacob’s descendants, God’s own people, Israel. He cared for them with a true heart and led them with skillful hands. – PSALM 78:71-72
What can we learn from King David’s call to leadership?
The leader God uses:
What a great example of the leader God calls.
Do you know of such a leader?
Does he smell like sheep?
Think and pray
What attributes have attracted you to the leaders you’ve followed?
Father, give me Your heart for the people I lead and work with. Help me to walk humbly and lead skillfully. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
