A HARD Leader - Part IV
By:Rick Boxx
June 10, 2016

This week we’re talking about Moses’ leadership qualities using the acronym HARD. We’ve discussed being Humble, Approachable, a Representative of God, and now let’s discuss being a Delegator.

In Exodus 18, Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, was shocked at how Moses spent all day and night serving as the only judge to the disputes of hundreds of thousands of Israelites.

Jethro wisely encouraged Moses to delegate authority to other God-fearing leaders by establishing a military-type hierarchy. Jethro said, “Have them bring every difficult case to you; the simple cases they can decide themselves. That will make your load lighter, because they will share it with you.”

We cannot serve others well if we don’t delegate our heavy load. Become a Delegator and spread your work around. It’ll lighten your load and increase productivity.
