Leadership Lesson #2 : Lifting The Lid

Best Blog Tips



"In the past, when Saul was our king, you were the one who really led the forces of Israel. And the LORD told you, 'You will be the shepherd of my people Israel. You will be Israel's leader."

2 Samuel 5:2.




Why did Saul as Israel's king, while David succeeded? The answer can be found in the Law of the Lid. Leadership ability is the lid that determines a person's level of effectiveness, you have to raise the lid on your leadership ability. David had many lids on his life, but they did not stop him:

1. His family
2. His leader
3. His Background
4. His youthfulness and inexperience

Ultimately, David became a great leader-yet not because he lacked limitations in life. He achieved much because he became a lid lifter.

Every leader has lids on his life; nobody is born without them. And they don't disappear when a person receives a title, achieves a position, or gets invested with power. The issue is not whether you have lids, but what you do about them.

What I say:
An excellent leader does not rely on how great or talented of your followers are. But depends on how much you rely on Him and bring the best out of them. Lets us learned from Saul failure and redeem ourselves and serve HIM with righteousness.
