It is written that any King of Israel was required to hand write a copy for himself the instructions the Lord gave Moses before inheriting The Promised Land. He then was to keep it near him and read it daily as long as he lived. In doing so, he would learn to fear the Lord, and it would prevent him from becoming proud and from turning away from God. It would also ensure that descendants would reign for many generations in Israel.
If a person is to grow in Godly leadership, one must hold the Word of God as top priority in their life. By reading and meditating on it every day, it will:
1. Keep your heart humble
2. Keep your path straight
3. Ensure a Godly legacy
This is a great lesson for all leaders in any capacity.
