Deborah was a mother to Israel, she nurtured, comforted, instructed, disciplined and encouraged them always at the same time leading them to God. As a mother would discipline she sought a change in the heart of the nation without causing a rebellion. When they thought all was loss, she encouraged them to keep doing what was right in God’s eye’s.
As leaders we need to do the same. This is the only time that we don’t want to be like the sun when people abuse it and they get burned. We need to be as a mother nurturing her child in all areas of development. Not burning those that are following us out but strengthening to continue on in their growth.
