Give It Away
Today's reading: Nehemiah 7:1-4
Good leaders know they can't do it all. They understand that leading well requires them to give away some of their responsibilities to others. It makes better use of time, skills and talent (of the leader and the one receiving the new responsibility), and the giving away of duties and the responsibilities that come with them is one of the best ways to teach and develop new leaders.
"I gave my brother Hanani and Hananiah the governor of the castle charge over Jerusalem, for he was a more faithful and God-fearing man than many" (vs. 2).
