Chapter-a-Day I Samuel 30

And suddenly David was in even worse trouble. There was talk among the
men, bitter over the loss of their families, of stoning him
. I Samuel 30:6 (TM)

As much success as David had enjoyed, there is no such thing as leadership without trial. When you lead human beings, you step into the spotlight – and standing in the spotlight makes you one easy target. You set yourself up for criticism, ridicule, derision and in extreme cases like David’s – potential death or bodily harm. We all have our heroes of leadership, but I guarantee that every one of them took their share of shots from the peanut gallery. Why should your or I be any different?
