Notes from the Journey with David – 136

136. Take your lord’s servants with you and set Solomon my son on my own mule (1 Kings 1:33).

When you establish a new leader in your organization, you must give a portion of your visible leadership to him so that others can see the transfer of authority. David sets Solomon on his own mule and takes great pains to portray Solomon as the new king. David’s clear affirmation of Solomon leaves no room for doubt as to the identity of the new king. Solomon is now the leader, and David makes every effort to help people see that clearly. This is good wisdom for any leader who is seeking to establish someone in a place of authority. Do all you can to make your choice clear so the people will know to follow.
