Joshua 24:31 KJV
And Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the Lord , that he had done for Israel.
When J.A Kuffour was president of Ghana, He had two key people in two very crucial positions; the Attorney General and Minister of Defence. The latter was his trusted brother.
Throughout scripture, key military generals have made or unmade kings. David had his fair share of issues with his army commander, Joab. While most of these right-hand men have or almost torn kingdoms apart, same could not be said of Joshua. Moses did not only have his trust, but the God factor also rubbed off unto Joshua.
So scripture can have it that “in as long as Joshua lived, Israel served the Lord.”
A successful man is one who is able to leave behind another to carry out his vision. Because of Joshua, Moses was a success. Because of Solomon David was a success.
Because of Elisha, Elijah was a success. What is your succession plan? Who can carry out your business/ministry ideals and take you to the next level, though you may not be there by then. Think succession, it’s not too early to.
Have a blessed day.
