1/3 MYF-> John maxwell,The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership #10

The Law of inner circle
  • David and the Law of the inner circle.

Read Bible:- 2samuel,

8:1-8 (David and the first war)

8:15-18 (David became the king)

10:6-14 (David and the second war)

23:8-23 (David's mighty men)

Why David relate to the law of inner circle??

a) start with one-> When the LORD delivered David from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of saul, suddenly he met Jonathon. Jonathon change David's life, and become one of the member of David's inner circle.

David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father's household heard about it, they went down to him there. All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him. NIV 1samuel 22:1-2

b) from misfits to mighty men-> TTT, David train the trainer!

c) Building a kingdom

Then the spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said:

"we are yours, O David!

we are with you, O son of Jesse!

Success, success to you,

and success to those who help you,

for your God will help you."

So David recieved them and made them leaders of his raiding bands. (NIV 1Chronicles12:18)

Question: How David gather all the Wise and excellent members?

  • He started building a strong inner circle before he needed it
  • He attracted people with varied gifts
  • He engendered loyalty
  • He delegated responsibility based on ability.
