Reeling Leadership

How Organizations & Nations Slack In Growth and Development

Now, however, Israel is led by drunks who reel with wine and stagger with alcohol. The priests and prophets stagger with alcohol and lose themselves in wine. They reel when they see visions and stagger as they render decisions. Their tables are covered with vomit; filth is everywhere. "Who does the Lord think we are?" they ask. "Why does he speak to us like this? Are we little children, just recently weaned?

 Isaiah 28:7-9 (NLT)

  That night the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, "What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!" 

Solomon replied, "You showed faithful love to your servant my father, David, because he was honest and true and faithful to you. And you have continued your faithful love to him today by giving him a son to sit on his throne. 

"Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn't know his way around. And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people, a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?"

 1 Kings 3:5-9 (NLT)


Leadership, although we usually overlook it, is God's idea - For He Himself is the Greatest Leader, who is not only committed to exceptional leadership delivery; but also to the development of other leaders. Hence, his book (the Bible) is the most authentic, relevant and inspiring leadership handbook in the world today - as the Bible is loaded with accounts of lousy leaders, great leaders and the greatest Leader Himself!

The two portions of the Scriptures above, presents to us in vivid terms; a clear and convincing contrast between two forms of leaderships: For although the accounts relates to the same nation; it also relates to two manners of leaderships. The frist account provides us with the picture of what I tagged, "Reeling Leadership"; while the second account reveals the true spirit of effective leadership.

Dr. John Stanko wrote a book sometime, which he titled, "So Man Leaders, But So Little Leaderships"; and I fully concor with him: For what we celebrate in our nations today at the personal, peer, family, team, organizational, society and generational levels) as good leaderships; are nothing but "reeling leaderships". And please note, it doesn't ,matter whether the people are comfortable or whether the syems are maintained - for a reeling leader can actually do fine within organized systems and equally keep the people comfortable.

Although it wasn't too long that I was born; I have however seen a lot of leaders at various leadership setups, who are not worthy to be called leaders - For if I say that they have lost their vision; then, I meant that they once had it - but they appear never to have had any vision. Thus, a "leader" without any vision is like a blind driver of a luxurious bus - what a great risk!

If you read the first Scriptures carefully, yoou would see that the source of the problems of the reeling leaders wasn't even lack of vison or lack of jugment; rather, their problem lies within their personalities: For they were reelers!

The point I am making is that, personality has a lot to tell about the direction of anyone - that is, where a person is aheading to

in life, can be known from who a man is. And so, when a man is a reeler, the best direction his life or leadership can take is a reeling leadership.

In that Isaiah 28, the leaders said, "Who does the LORD think we are?"; and that laone gives me an insight into the heart of those leaders - and really, they were leaders without understanding of who they were. And since they did not know who they were, they also did not know the purpose of theeir leadership; and they did not know the right steps to guide their people into. Thus, they become reeling leaders - who can only take their people through circles!

May I say, it takes clear vision to move anyone forward - For until a man is clear about himself, his purpose of living and leading; such a man can never grasp a view into where he is going. And a fellow that lacks good understanding of where he is going can not guide any person through a reasonable progress.

And the truth is, reeling leaders do not know that they are reelers; although, their leaderships are usually characterized by stagnancy, weariness, low morale and ultimately, divisions.

Beyond any doubt, we in Africa have victims of reeling leaders; who are practically going nowhere, and are taking people nowhere. "What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shut the door of the Kingdom of Heaven in people's faces. You won't go in yourselves, and you don't let others enter either." (Matthew 23:13) And so, the people continue to mumur, complain and perish - but when the people are willing to challenge or remove reeling leaders; societies and organizations would experience real growth and development.

Perhaps, your leadership has been tending that path described above - maybe it is gradually becoming difficult for you to observe reasonable progress in the family, organization or team that you are leading; then you need to begin a recovery process from self-awareness to purpose discovery and to the crafting of clearer personal and organizational visions. Remember, when there is no vision, the people perish (scatter or cast off restraint); so, make efforts to clear out every fuzziness from your heart, and ask God like Solomon, to help you to lead the people you are responsible for well and ask Him to give you good sense of jugment.

Reeling leaders are best discovered through their unsteady movements (decisions) and pursuits. Allow yourself to be guided on the right path by God, so that the people you are leading can actually be at rest in confidence of their safety and progress.

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

Nuggets for Leaders

One thing that you must realize about LEADERSHIP is that there is no magic anywhere to becoming an EFFECTIVE LEADER. Most successful leaders that we know and we read about today all possess certain TRAITS AND ABILITIES, which when combined with their strong PRINCIPLES, made them exceptional and effective leaders.

Checkout these two lives and their outcomes: "A life lived to fulfill its PURPOSE, which ends in FULFILLMENT; another life lived for FUN, which ends up in FRUSTRATION." What type of life are you living - is it for fun unto FRUSTRATION or for FUNCTION unto FULFILLMENT?

The pathway to GREATNESS is hardly plated with gold; even when it does, the gold is hardly REFINED. If you want things beautiful, then you must MAKE them BEAUTIFUL!
