Leadership Qualities: Generosity Part 1

Candle Loses Nothing-Deuteronomy 14:27-15:18

If great leaders err, they do so on the side of generosity. They are givers, not takers. They feel motivated to:

  1. Serve others-to help them grow and thrive.
  2. Solve problems-that prevent potential from being reached.
  3. Save causes-that benefit mankind.

God instructs His leaders and the entire nation of Israel to imitate His generosity and grace. They simply needed to trust that God was in control and let Him worry about rain and sun and fruitful harvest times.

God’s instructions here provides us with a reminder of the nature of true leadership. We don’t keep score with people; we just keep on giving.
