If you are a dad, you are a leader. Moms are leaders. Older siblings are leaders. If anyone answers to you at work you are a leader. If you are a Christian, you are a leader. If you are a pastor, a teacher, a public servant, a community worker, you are a leader. Most of us function as a leader in some way. Leadership is not for sissies. If you have tried it, you know what I am talking about. It’s challenging. Sometimes it seems almost impossible. Much ink is spilled and much money spent on books and seminars and podcasts for tips and tricks and hacks and advice on leadership.
One day I picked up a copy of the Living Bible–an old greed padded version (remember them?) and I began to read in Exodus. Immediately I saw that one of the greatest leaders in the history of mankind was a reluctant leader who would never have written a book or lead a seminar on leadership–his name was Moses.
As fast as I could key them in insights on leadership from the life of Moses began to spill out of a simple reading of the story of Moses’ leadership. Leadership according to Moses is not easy, but it is strait-forward and simple. Who in our modern world of experts and leadership gurus and high-powered business icons could say their leadership was more significant than the leadership of Moses? How did he lead?
Did I Write These Messages for You
I have gathered those insights into a series of messages. My plan was to preach those messages in the Sundays following Easter. What I didn’t know at the time is that those messages were not for Evangel. They were for my next church or the churches I will visit in my travels. Maybe they were for your group or church.
Let’s Talk About It
If leadership is a bit of a mystery to you, give me a call and I can come and talk with your group about Moses on Leadership. 734-626-9810
