"In our reading today, we see how God chooses the least likely man for the task. It’s amazing how the Bible records the truth of Israel’s history so that we can learn from the foul-ups, bleeps, and blunders of those who have come before us. A common human blunder has always been leadership. Even today, there are bookshelves full of self-help books on the topic. Many authors claim to know what makes a great leader, and they list steps to achieve it. Sure, these can get us part way there, but only God can make truly great and determined leaders. And it’s worth noting that just claiming leadership and having power does not make you a great leader. In our Bible reading, we can see God choosing those in Israel’s leadership despite their preferences. Jephthah’s life and leadership is the story of a man rejected by his own people yet chosen by God for a task. He was far from perfect, but he had a job to do for God’s people.
