Notes from the Journey with David – 94

94. But David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went (2 Samuel 15:30).
It must have been quite a scene as David ascends the hill. The people are walking behind him as he prepares to leave his capitol city. While the events are tragic, kudos to David for leading his people in this hour of grief. Far too often, leaders hide their moments of heartbreak and they fail to show those they lead how to grieve. Most leaders are so bent on positive energy that they don’t allow others to see them in negative emotions. The result is a shallow people that do not know how to deal with the hurts of life. Sadly many churches operate in this manner and then end up very unhealthy.

    Honest leadership produces a people who deal with life honestly. Leaders are to show the way aren’t they? If they never show anything but a ‘happy face’ how are the people they lead going to know how to handle life’s problem– in fact they get idea that there is something wrong with them because they are having problems and their leaders never have them. Thank you Pastor Mike for a good word. LaVona
