DCLM Daily Manna 26 August 2018 – Presumptuous and Contentious Leaders

Topic: Presumptuous and Contentious Leaders
[DCLM Daily Manna 26 August 2018 Daily Devotional] Text: Numbers 16:1-11 (KJV)

Key Verse: “And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?” (Numbers 16:3).

MESSAGE:

The true nature of a man is known when he occupies an important position of authority. This is why several factors must be considered before appointment into any leadership position that demands responsibilities in the house of God.

From the text, Korah, Dathan and Abiram led a rebellious group against the leadership of Moses and Aaron. Korah persuaded 250 other important leaders to join him.

He was not satisfied with his duties of helping the priests to look after the most sacred objects in God’s tent (Numbers 4:1-15).

He went to Moses on a wrong premise that Moses and Aaron were not more important or holier than any other Israelite. He was not mindful of the fact that God had given special authority to Moses and Aaron. He was jealous of the power and authority they had over the people. He also wanted this type of power. This was the ultimate reason behind his rebellion.

We should be careful not to allow presumption and contention overcome our reasons of wanting to hold a particular position, either in the church of God or in the society. We should not presume to know more than others or leaders set over us. We should work more for the faith that was once delivered onto the saints than contend for position as it happened to Lucifer.

Believers should always be on their guard to quickly notice any contentious spirit trying to grip over their souls. They should be satisfied with whatever position God put them in the church or in the society, pray and wait for His promotion at its right time, and they will never regret.

Thought For The Day: Avoid carnal consideration: they are deadly.
