   Anyone desiring a service position must demonstrate godly love as a foundation of good leadership John 15:13.  In Judges Chapters 4 and 5, we find an example of a godly woman in leadership called Deborah who laid down her life for others in a loving, caring manner that directed Israel at a time when sin and lawlessness were the order of the day.

   Leadership is influence and true influence comes by being exemplary before others. Deborah was a wife, a mother in Israel, a prophet, a judge and also a military leader, who displayed godly and exemplary qualities in her leadership, as women in leadership, we too should be able to balance our roles and yet remind exemplary to others.

   As godly women, we should be well balanced in wisdom, knowledge and understanding in the things of God and life.  What set Deborah apart was her ability to be well balanced in wisdom and knowledge- hence the need to study 2 Timothy 2:15 “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed rightly diving the Word of truth.”   

   We can’t make the mistake Eve the first woman did she didn’t understand the vision of her husband and the enemy passed through her to kill the assignment of her husband.
