Long gone are the days when there are only men in authority positions. Even in the bible, God used women to lead others, teach others and care for others.

In this 3-part series, I’ll discuss leadership lessons from 3 amazing women in the bible.

Part 1: Ruth

One of my absolute favourite stories in the bible is the story of Ruth and Boaz. I’ve always loved it because it’s just a nice, beautiful love story. You can go read it in the Book of Ruth in the Old Testament.

Now, although Ruth wasn’t a "leader", there is one valuable leadership lesson we can learn from her… she didn’t give up on her people. People in this context being her mother-in-law.

Let’s recap the story briefly: Naomi has two sons, and both of them married. One was married to Orpah and the other to Ruth.

Naomi’s husband and two sons died, and her two daughters-in-laws were with her. Naomi wanted to return to her homeland with her two daughters-in-laws but on the way, she said to them to return to their mother’s house so that they may remarry.

Orpah departed but Ruth decided to stay. She was determined to remain by Naomi’s side.

Human Nature

So often, as human beings, we tend to give up on people, especially if they hurt us or break up the friendship for whatever reason. It’s easy for us to give up on a friendship or loved one. I’ve been there, unfortunately.

What should we do as leaders?

However, as leaders, we need to rise above our human nature to give up on people. Sometimes people just need us to believe in them, have faith in them, encourage them and give them a little nudge (or push!). So never give up on your team, get to know them on a personal level (without crossing the boundaries), so that you know when they just need that extra bit of belief in you that they can do it!
