(5) IF YOU WANT TO LEAD OTHERS TO DO GOD’S WILL, YOU MUST FIRST BEGIN WITH YOURSELF & YOUR OWN FAMILY.

5. IF YOU WANT TO LEAD OTHERS TO DO GOD’S WILL, YOU MUST FIRST BEGIN WITH YOURSELF & YOUR OWN FAMILY.
Exodus 4:24-26 – “And it came to pass on the way, at the encampment, that the LORD met him and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone and cut off the foreskin of her son and cast it at Moses’ feet, and said, ‘Surely you are a husband of blood to me!’ So He let him go. Then she said, ‘You are a husband of blood!’–because of the circumcision.”
Apparently Moses had failed to circumcise one his sons as was commanded of him. How could Moses lead Israel if he wasn’t leading faithfully in his own family? God would not allow Moses to be a hypocrite, so He forced the issue and the matter was resolved. Hypocrites tell others what to do and then they do something different themselves. Good leaders are consistent in their words and deeds at every level.
