Leaders, be interceders. 1 Chronicles 21:16-17

1 Chronicles 21:16-17 “David looked up and saw the angel of the LORD standing between heaven and earth with his sword drawn, reaching out over Jerusalem. So David and the leaders of Israel put on burlap to show their deep distress and fell face down on the ground. And David said to God, ‘I am the one who called for the census! I am the one who has sinned and done wrong! But these people are as innocent as sheep—what have they done? O LORD my God, let your anger fall against me and my family, but do not destroy your people.'”

What is God saying to me?  The big idea in this story is that a leader’s sin doesn’t only affect him; it has consequences for the ones he leads.  However, a second theme jumped out to me today.  I must intercede for the people I lead.

How will I obey?  As I seek to follow Jesus today, I will spend 30 minutes dedicated to interceding for those I lead.

Who will I tell?   Curtis and Mason

Who can you intercede for today?
