Now the leaders of the people settled in Jerusalem… (Nehemiah 11:1).
Before inviting other people to move into the capital city with its newly rebuilt walls and gates, the leaders moved in first.
And then leaders continue “firsting” even when the people seem to backslide.
Leaders continue to remain hopeful for their friends even in those backsliding times.
Simply stated: Leaders keep going first in following God so that they can continually be empowered to lead others in the right paths.
A mark of a godly leader is one who keeps going first, and who keeps bringing others along on life-giving, God-honoring paths.
