Every Tribe Contributed a Leader

The Book of Numbers begins with instructions from the Lord for Moses to take a census of Israel in the wilderness. Additionally, the Lord told Moses, “And with you there shall be a man from every tribe, each one the head of his father’s house” (Numbers 1:4).
In Israel, men wanted to be leaders. They wanted to be elders. In the church, it seems that men run from that. Why? We have the tendency not to honor leadership. If you do not honor leadership, change today and start honoring all forms of leadership, even if you disagree with a leader. You must honor the position, so that even as Israel provided men to stand with Moses, so we need men who will stand with Jesus.
