Lessons from Rachel on how to become a leader in your field

Ever come across something in the Bible that makes you go “wait..what?!”

Well, that’s exactly how I felt when I read Genesis 29:9- which says that Rachel was a shepherdess.

If you’re up-bringing was anything like mine, then you’re used to hearing about Rachel in terms of her:

  1. Beauty

  2. Being Jacob’s (favourite) wife

  3. Being infertile before giving birth to Joseph and Benjamin

But this was literally the first time that I’d seen that she also had another string to her bow! And not just any string-a leadership role! (Because the Bible uses the word “shepherd” on several occasions to mean “leader,” as in Ezekiel 34, Jeremiah 21 and John 10). As such, Rachel has much to teach us about leadership and how to do it God’s way.

I elaborated on this and more on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
