Leaders do not eat the same thing as those that will be led. Harder meat with bones is served to the chief of the fathers, priests and scribe. This session is for a deeper understanding of the law of God. You cannot provide leadership to people who are at or above your level in the understanding of what needs to be done. This is the reason why the preparation of the leader is uniquely different and considerably tougher … the leaders are isolated to understand matters that are not covered with the others. This is an important principle.
Organisations have leadership sessions and training programs that are usually far more demanding to prepare and filter out those that can be trusted with the mantle of leadership. Joseph was not trained like his brothers … after his father , Jacob had done what he could, God had to remove him for practical exposures and isolation in Egypt where he was being spiritually prepared to rule. The understanding of leaders must be richer in many regards and their learning deeper and broader. Nehemiah set aside another day … successful organisations know that leadership training is a must. Leaders are justified not by the title, but the depth they exhibit that comes with different exposures and more comprehensive learnings
Verses for further meditation

Thoughts for Business and the work place
No one is born a good leader. It takes time, experience and education.
Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, teach and prepare me to labor in your vineyard.
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
