True Leaders Work to Incorporate All


Jethro joins [Moses], Aaron and "all the elders of Israel," "at the mountain of God," a powerful place of sacred encounter. "Next day, Moses sat as magistrate among the people, while the people stood about Moses from morning until evening. But when Moses' father-in-law saw how much he had to do ... he said, 'What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you act alone, while all the people stand all about you from morning until evening?' "As Jethro tells Moses, "Have them bring every major dispute to you, but let them decide every minor dispute themselves." Jethro teaches Moses that he, too, must learn to realistically assess his own skills, and the limits of his own energy From his mentor Jethro, Moses learns the imperative of sharing both the responsibilities and burdens of leadership, thus clearing paths to better service to a greater number of Israelites.
