Connect With Your Leadership Heritage

"So all Israel was recorded by genealogies, and indeed, they were inscribed in the book of the kings of Israel. But Judah was carried away captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness."  1 Chronicles 9:1

The first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles furnish a genealogy of Israel's leaders-almost a third of the book!

What Do Your People Want?

"Then I returned and considered all the oppression that is done under the sun: And look! The tears of the oppressed, but they have no comforter - on the side of their oppressors there is power, but they have no comforter . . . again, I saw that for all toil and every skillful work a man is envied by his neighbor. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind. The fool folds his hands and consumes his own flesh. Better a handful with quietness than both hands full, together with toil and grasping for the wind. Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun: There is one alone, without companion: he has neither son nor brother. Yet there is no end to all his labors, nor is his eye satisfied with riches. But he never asks, 'For whom do I toil and deprive myself of good?' This also is vanity and a grave misfortune." Ecclesiastes 4:1, 4-8more...

Leadership Transitions

"And the king took an oath and said, 'As the Lord lives, who has redeemed my life from every distress, just as I swore to you by the Lord God of Israel, saying, 'Assuredly Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he shall sit on my throne in my place,' so I certainly will do this day'."  1 Kings 1:29-30more...

Don't Let Go of Your Dream

"But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, 'The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us' . . . And all the congregation said to stone them with stones'."  Numbers 14:6-8, 10more...
