"Now if it pleases the king, let a search be made in the royal archives of Babylon to see if King Cyrus did in fact issue a decree to rebuild this house of God in Jerusalem. Then let the king send us his decision in this matter" - Ezra 5:17.
All leaders have to pay attention to the organization and efficiency of their organization, even the church. In today's verse, we see that Babylon had archives that were accessible and available for research. These archives had to have people overseeing them and some reasonable filing and storage method. Once the research was finished on the question at hand, the king then had to communicate his decision as to the way forward quickly and effectively—again requiring organizational efficiency. Leaders must attend to the matters of organization and structure so their entities can have access to past decisions and communicate present ones to those who need to know.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to tend to the organizational capabilities of your company (or family). Do you have archives of photos and important documents? Where are they stored and how public or accessible are they? Then take a look at the communication efficiency of your team or company. Are you structured and disciplined enough to get important messages to those who need to know? Are you communicating too much or too little? Is it possible to communicate too much or too often? Make sure as a leader you are modeling the organizational skill you desire others to have.
