Notes on Leadership
LEADERSHIP - 1). Pharaoh’s officials and highest leaders admired Moses. (v.3) Some of this may be because they knew him as a child. But we can also assume it is because of his great leadership during the difficult time of the plagues. They had never seen anyone stand up to Pharaoh in such a strong way. By simply doing what God asked, Moses won the favor of his enemies. If we will obey God will all of our hearts, He will open doors for us and bring favor upon us that we couldn’t have done on our own. 2). Moses declared that Pharaoh’s leaders would bow down to him and beg him to leave with the Hebrews. (v.8) Moses knew that they were leaning toward allowing Him to take he Hebrews and leave. He made this statement with passion and anger. He didn’t want their children to die, and it may have brought up memories of his own difficult childhood in similar circumstances. As leaders, we always carry our experiences and emotions with us in our job to lead. We can let these feelings impact our decisions, but not dictate our choices.
