The Teachable Leader
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 16:1-19:8
Godly leaders desperately need wise counselors who will speak the truth to them. It’s easy for leaders to find “yes men” but where are those who will tell the truth even when it hurts?
If you are a leader, would those you lead say you are receptive and approachable?
Be sure you follow a teachable leader. Be sure you are willing to be a Joab to your leader when necessary.
