The Daily Nosh – Joshua 1:16-18
Then they answered Joshua saying: “All that you have commanded us, we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you. Only may Adonai your God be with you, as he was with Moses! Whoever rebels against your command and does not obey your words in all that you command him, he will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous.” (TLV)
Nosh: Decisiveness and courage are qualities that define a great leader. They are also qualities that people require if they are to follow a leader into difficult and dangerous situations. Leaders that exhibit indecisiveness and timidity under pressure are sure to have dwindling influence and few followers.
