Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 8 & 9)
“Ruling In The Fear of God”
Text: 2 Samuel 8:15
“So David reigned over all Israel; and David administered judgment and justice to all his people.”
This Character of “Ruling in the Fear of God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
King David “administered judgment and justice to all his people;” because he was Ruling in the Fear of God. This is the Character of a Servant Leader; one who looks after the best interests of those they lead. The Servant Leader demonstrates towards those they lead, empathy, listening, stewardship, and commitment to personal growth of others. The Servant Leader leads with Selfless Love. This is a picture of our Commander and King Jesus; the Perfect Servant Leader Who Leads Us With Love.
God’s Leadership Model for David became David’s Leadership Model to Israel.
Servant Leadership is Learned from God and Deployed by godly leaders like King David!
In his final words to his son Solomon, King David advised him:
“The God of Israel said,
The Rock of Israel spoke to me:
‘He who rules over men must be just,
Ruling in the fear of God.” (2Samuel 23:3).
“Help us be more like You Jesus, and lead others the way You lead us - as a Servant Leader with Love; Ruling in the Fear of God. In Jesus name we pray - Amen.”
