Father or Bother?

Daily Reading // Isaiah 22:15-25


Take a moment to quiet your mind and prepare your heart for your time with the Lord.


Read the passage above up to three times aloud. Allow yourself to feel the words as they are read.


Now direct your focus on the words, phrases concepts or sentences that got your attention. What is God speaking to you today through His word?

Isaiah 22:21 I will clothe him with your robe And strengthen him with your belt; I will commit your responsibility into his hand. He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem And to the house of Judah.

One leader was being removed from office and another was being placed in office — by God Himself. I love the commendation God gives to this new leader: “He will be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” Leadership isn’t a job, and certainly not one to consider your own needs above the needs of others. Leadership is a relationship, like a father, who cares for his children and puts their needs above his own.

Am I a father or am I a bother to the people I am called to lead?


Pray in response to what the Lord has spoken to you.

Father, You express Your leadership to us as a relationship. You are our Father. And You are a good, good Father. You could dominate us, but You care for us. Thank You for being my Father. Make me like You. Amen.

Tomorrow’s reading -> Isaiah 23:1-18
