1 And the king said to all the assembly, “Solomon my son, whom alone God has chosen, is young and inexperienced, and the work is great, for the palace will not be for man but for the Lord God. 23 Then Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord as king in place of David his father. And he prospered, and all Israel obeyed him. 24 All the leaders and the mighty men, and also all the sons of King David, pledged their allegiance to King Solomon. 25 And the Lord made Solomon very great in the sight of Israel and bestowed on him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.
1 Chronicles 29:1, 23-25
No other leader in the history of Israel started as fast as Solomon. And this inexperienced man had little if anything to do with his early momentum. How did a King like David convince and rally the support of the general population, his seasoned warriors, Solomon’s brothers, and God Himself? Transferring leadership depends on the man who is giving it away.
A man who transfers leadership successfully does so with detailed forethought and great intention. He has to communicate to those that will be impacted, plainly speaking the truth about the situation while gathering support and leaning on God. The man who receives’s this benefit will see early returns in his work. Everyone affected wins when a man succeeds and thrives in his role. Regardless of position, learning to give and accept responsibilities in this way will build a better man.
DO THIS TODAY: Transfer leadership like David with thought and intention.
