Joshua was an exceptional example of a leader. Here at the end of chapter 19 is another reason why.
After all the tribes have received their various parts of the Promised Land, then the people of Israel gave of their land a portion to Joshua. As a great leader should, he served them and took care of them first, and he did not use the power of his office to take what he wanted. And because of his good example, the people did as the Lord had told them, and have him the city he asked for. But get this…it says, “So he built the city and lived in it.”
He chose for his city not one of the big and powerful cities that already existed. He had to build his city before he could live in it.
This was indeed, a leader.
